Baseball: Richland rallies to beat Mt. Spokane

March 14, 2013 

The Richland Bombers didn’t flinch after they found themselves in a three-run hole against visiting Mt. Spokane on Thursday.

The Bombers went ahead in the sixth inning after two runs were walked in and Gibson McGeorge hit a two-run double, and Richland pulled out a 7-6 victory.

“I was happy with how we hit,” Richland coach Grant Richardson said. “We got settled in and had nine hits. That’s not bad.”

Nate Ruane drove in two runs for the Bombers, while Garrett March went 3-for-4.
