Penney hit a solo homer, Mitch Lomax struck out eight and Calvin
Hermanson worked out of final-inning jam for Lake Oswego (1-1).
Penney's shot sailed through light raindrops and landed in the
hedges beyond the left-field fence.
"I looked at it as I rounded first and it was cool to see it go out
of Williamsport, Pennsylvania," said the 12-year-old.
It didn't go quite that far, but the homer was good enough to give
Lake Oswego its first win.
Walpole (1-1) mounted a rally in the bottom of the sixth after John
Adams hustled into second on a blooper to shallow center and Brian
Wolpe walked. But Hermanson got Samuel Falkson to hit into a force
play to end the game.
