Baseball: Prosser scores historic win over Selah

April 6, 2013 

Prosser 4-3, Selah 2-2: Colby White had a pair of game-winning hits Saturday to lead the host Mustangs to their first win over the Vikings in 20 years, according to coach Kevin Cole.

In the opener, White hit a two-out, two-run double in the fifth to put Prosser (6-2 league) on top 3-2. In the nightcap, White hit an RBI single to score Kyle Kilian in the sixth inning.

“We have a good group of seniors this year, a veteran group of kids and they played well,” Cole said. “The CWAC is a tough league. We expect to compete. There was no reason we couldn’t win both (against Selah), that was our mindset.”

McKay Ashton pitched three strong innings of relief in the second game to earn the victory.
