CBC baseball sweeps Big Bend in NWAACC East action

April 10, 2013 

Columbia Basin starter Chad Bettinson pitched into the ninth inning to help the Hawks win the nightcap of an NWAACC East doubleheader 4-3 and sweep aside visiting Big Bend on Wednesday in Pasco.

The Hawks won the opener 18-4.

Bettinson allowed 11 hits, but just three runs — all of which were unearned. Nick Savas drove in a pair of runs for the Hawks.

“Chad Bettinson pitched an outstanding game for us,” CBC coach Chris Staton said. “He gave up some hits, but attacked hitters and got out of some tough innings.”

In the opener, the Hawks banged out 17 hits. Braden Wolgamott was 2-for-4 with a double and four RBIs, while Seth Lochridge and Jordan Webb each drove in three.

“Our hitters swung it well all game,” Staton said. “Ethan Cantu threw great in relief for us. He came in and slammed the door when we needed it.”
