WCL baseball

Jarod Gonzales scored the winning run on Scott Silva’s single with two out in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Walla Walla Sweets beat the Victoria HarborCats 4-3 in West Coast League baseball at Borleske Stadium.

Gonzales, the former Kennewick and current Walla Walla CC standout, was hit by a pitch with one out and moved along on a pair of walks before Silva singled to right.

The Sweets were in full control, with Gonzales’ WWCC teammate Jesse Houser (Kamiakin) throwing a 1-2-3 inning of relief in the seventh.

But Victoria scored its three runs in the eighth after Walla Walla started the frame with another reliever.


The Washington Angels Red U-12 team wrapped up its stay at the USSSA World Series in West Covina, Calif., with a 5-0 loss to the Pride Titans on Saturday.
