KENNEWICK — Southridge scored six runs over the final two innings to break a 6-6 tie and beat Central Washington 12-6.

Ezekyel Ochoa doubled home Zach Valdez in the first inning. More, Colton Minoletti hit an RBI single and Ochoa later scored on an error. Southridge answered with two runs in the home half of the first and later took the lead with one run each in the third and fourth inning.

Central Washington tied things up in the fifth inning when Wade Visker scored on a passed ball.

The Bandits struck for two more runs in the sixth inning before the Spuds tied the game a second time in the seventh inning. Columbia Basin Big Nine Pitcher of the Year Austin Valdez showed off his chops at the place with a two-run double to make the score 6-6.
