Baseball: Kamiakin, Chiawana split doubleheader

April 19, 2013 

Jordan Aviles was 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBIs for Chiawana, which earned a Mid-Columbia Conference split with Kamiakin at LaPierre Field in Kennewick.
The Braves won the opener 6-4, while the Riverhawks captured the nightcap 5-2.
Chiawana was playing without head coach Dave Price, who was hit in the face with an errant throw before the games and was taken to the ER for stitches.
“They really played hard and did a great job,” Kamiakin coach Ryan Carter said of Chiawana. “We battled and competed, but couldn’t get the momentum going in Game 2. Part of that was due to them doing a good job.”
Behind Dylan Keech’s 3-for-3 night, the Braves won the opener. Keech also drove in two runs, while David Marshall threw a complete game allowing no earned runs.
“I like where we are at right now,” Carter said. “We have room to improve, and we’ll get better.”
