By the Tri-City HeraldApril 13, 2013 

Brothers Devin and Donovan Percifield provided some big hits, and Tim Ellis had a shut-down game on the mound as Columbia-Burbank swept an SCAC East doubleheader 10-8 and 9-3 on Saturday against Royal in Burbank.

Donovan Percifield’s two-run double highlighted a five-run fifth inning in the opener, and Devin cranked a solo shot in the second as the Coyotes opened a 7-0 lead and then held on.

Ellis struck out 10 in seven innings in the second game, with Donovan Percifield again driving in a pair of runs.

Burbank improved to 4-0 in East play but have dates with Kiona-Benton and Warden in the coming week.

“We’ll know how it’s going to be pretty soon here,” coach Mike Steberl said.

Teddy Mead slugged a pair of doubles in the first game for the Knights.
