The Columbia Basin College baseball team needed a short memory Sunday.
The Hawks absorbed a brutal 17-1 loss to Edmonds in Game 1 of an NWAACC doubleheader in Pasco and needed to put that one behind them as quickly as possible.
But instead of bouncing back in Game 2, CBC starter Nathan Clark allowed seven runs on eight hits through the first three innings of a 7-3 loss to the Tritons.
Kyle Olson went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Game 1, scoring three runs and driving in two more for Edmonds. He followed that up in Game 2 with two more hits, two RBIs and three stolen bases.
The Tritons pounded out 14 hits against three Hawks pitchers in the opener, shelling starter Nate Sorensen for 10 runs on eight hits through four innings. In the nightcap, Clark had some early trouble on the mound before Ethan Cantu and Steven Danek backed him up with six scoreless innings of relief.
But the damage was done, and CBC couldn’t catch up to a seven-run deficit despite two hits and two runs from catcher Braden Wolgamott and another three hits from Ryan Atkinson.
The Hawks fell to 8-8, while Edmonds improved to 9-7.
