Print Article

MOSES LAKE — Central Washington picked up a much-needed split with Twin City Tuesday at Larson Playfield.

The Titans used an 11-run seventh inning to win the opener 14-0. The Spuds bounced back to scored four runs in the first inning of Game 2 and win 9-2.

In the first game, the Titans held a 3-0 lead through three innings before their offense came alive.

“I don’t know what happened,” head coach Robert Haensel said. “It was one of those explosive things.”

The Spuds scattered six hits.

The Spuds took advantage of some errors and had timely hits to lead 4-0 after one inning in the late game. Cody Goodwin had a bunt RBI single and Zach Valdez hit an RBI single to left field.

Valdez, Cameron Duke and Brandon Swett had two RBI each.

Ezekyel Ochoa went five innings in Game 2 and Austin Valdez recorded the final six outs.

The Spuds have eight more league games and sit in fourth place. The top four teams advance to the state tournament.

Yakima Valley scored six runs in the first inning of the Game 2 rout.
