Richland's Walchli helps Explosion win at state

MOSES LAKE -- Lindsey Walchli gave up nine hits and struck out eight over five innings as defending champions Washington Explosion effected a 10-5 five-inning victory over the Spokane Diamonds at the ASA 18A state tournament in Moses Lake.

The game was cut off after five complete innings because of tournament time limits.

And the Explosion's Paige Goulet made valuable her time on the mound in a game later against Yakima, striking out three and giving up just three hits over eight innings in an 8-3 win over the Stealers.
