Chiawana makes new skipper proud with doubleheader sweep

By the Tri-City HeraldMarch 10, 2013 

Chiawana made its new skipper’s debut a memorable one, beating Rogers 22-0 and 17-2 after scoring 39 runs on 21 hits in a nonleague doubleheader sweep in Pasco.

“I’m very pleased with how the kids opened up. This is a good start for us,” said Riverhawks manager Dave Price, a former assistant at Southridge under Tim Sanders. “We put the bat on the ball when we needed to.”

Luke Burgess had six hits on the day, including a four-hit performance in Game 1 and two RBIs in the nightcap. Grady Graff caught both ends of the twinbill and had enough left to double and triple in Game 2.
