Print Article

MOSES LAKE — Tia Radach hit two home runs, had six RBI and Moses Lake routed Eastmont 24-3 for the split and its fifth league title in a row.

The Wildcats won the opening game 13-5 behind a seven-run second inning. The Chiefs committed seven errors, allowing the Wildcats to push across eight unearned runs.

Moses Lake got within three runs, 8-5, before Eastmont countered with a four-run fifth inning to put the game out of reach. In Game 1, Radach was 3-for-5 with an RBI. Michelle Turner, Gina Skinner, Brooklyn Bailey and Brooke Richardson also drove runs in.

The second game was a different story from the plate and in the field. The Chiefs committed only one error and led 13-3 after three innings.

To go along with Radach's explosion, Baily homered and had three RBI. Richardson, Savannah Ashley and Paige Valdez had two RBI each.

Cheyenne Walker, along with Radach, had a team-high three hits.

The league championship carries with it an automatic berth into the Class 4A state tournament and a spot in the district title game May 20.
