Bears sweep Raiders in baseball doubleheader
COULEE DAM - Brewster remains undefeated in the Central Washington B League after dismantling Lake Roosevelt 22-1 and 11-1 in baseball on April 13.
“We really came out and hit the ball well,” said Brewster coach Todd Phillips of his team’s 19 hits. “You have to hand it to Lake Roosevelt. Their pitchers came out and threw strikes and forced us to hit the ball to beat them.
“Billy (Nicholson) is doing a good job with that group of young kids. They are going to get a lot of experience this year and they will be a contender for a league title in the next year or two.”
The Bears (10-0-1 overall, 7-0 league) led 3-0 after the first inning before pushing across 11 in the second and six more in the third.
“I think this may have been one of our best hitting performances that we’ve ever had,” Phillips said. “It wasn’t a walk-fest. We really just drove in a lot of runs.”
Brewster finished with 19 hits, including doubles by Joe Taylor (2), Corey Jarrell (2), Jeff Sonneman (1) and Cade Gebbers (1).
Brit Egbert had a double in the third for Lake Roosevelt’s lone hit that broke up a perfect game by Kade Kelpman.
Egbert’s hit scored Cameron St. Pierre, who got on base after being hit by a pitch and reached home after a throw error on a relay.
In the second game after Brewster scored a run in the top of the first, Egbert singled, moved to second on a walk and scored on consecutive passed balls for the Raiders’ lone run.
The Bears struck for six runs in the second, which started with Kelpman being hit by a pitch, stealing second and third.
Isaac Baker walked and stole second before AJ Woodward doubled for two RBI.
Brewster, which scored four more in the third, also had doubles by Joe Taylor, Jarrell and Gebbers.
Sonneman, who pitched the win, had a triple.
Both teams finished with two errors.
