Raider baseball win and lose
The Raiders pummeled Pateros but lost to Liberty Bell last week in two away baseball games.
Lake Roosevelt came away with a 10-run victory over the Billygoats in Pateros April 8.
Trey Nicholson went four for five with a grand slam and a three-run home run to drive in seven runs for LR.
Chance Garvin scored four LR runs.
“We hit the ball well, but need to improve our defense,” commented Head Coach Billy Nicholson on LR allowing the Billygoats to score eight runs in the victory.
Riding a two-game winning streak into the April 12 matchup with the Liberty Bell Mt. Lions at Liberty Bell the Raider bats fell silent.
Taren Redstar hit one of three and scored the only Raider run in the loss.
“We made too many mistakes to compete with league-leading Liberty Bell,” Nicholson said.
Last night against Bridgeport, the Raiders hoped to reawaken the offense for rebound. On Saturday, the Raiders host Manson in a doubleheader starting at 11 a.m. on Greene Field.
LR trounced the Trojans at Manson March 25 by 20-9. The Trojans nabbed their first win of the season April 12 against the Oroville Hornets. Manson is second to last in the Central Washington 2B league ahead of White Swan by just one game.
