WALLA WALLA — Walla Walla Community College’s bats showed up in the nightcap of a nonleague doubleheader sweep of Blue Mountain Community College.
After beating the Timberwolves 5-1 in the first game, WWCC (9-1) hammered Blue Mountain with 12 hits for a 15-1 mercy-rule thumping in the nightcap.
And while the Warriors rattled off 21 hits for the day, the WWCC pitching staff held the Timberwolves to just two runs on 11 hits while striking out 10 and walking five batters.
“Our pitchers did a nice job of controlling the tempo of the game,” WWCC coach Dave Meliah said in an email. “Defensively we played very well behind them.”
Trevor Jones led the Warrior bats with six RBI for the day on three hits, including a two-run home run in the night cap and an RBI triple in the opener.
“Trevor Jones had a heck of a day swinging the stick,” Meliah said. “It was nice to see him break out a little bit today.”
The Warriors open East Region play Wednesday with a doubleheader against Wenatchee.
