Like Clockwork, Big Ben Strikes Back as Wildcats Split Series With Wolves

Ellensburg, Wash.- He used the name Penny for a reason. Ben Lyden The Wildcats will smash 2 home runs into right field on Sunday as they split their series with the Western Oregon University Wolves. The Central Washington University baseball team split a second day with the Wolves on Sunday, seeing the Wolves win game one by a final score of 10-9, and the Wildcats win game two with a strong pitching performance. Daniel Sharon, and a 2-3 game at the plate with the lead. Kevin „Baba” Warner Jr. would make two spectacular defensive plays for the Wildcats on Sunday, fighting the wind as one took him back to the wall, only for Baba to leap up and crash into the fence. Not long after, Baba would make a diving catch down the right field line for a hit and a potential run, a tip of the hat to our outfielder Baba!

Quote head coach Desi Story

„I'm glad we got the split there and helped keep us in the mix. Another strong performance from Sharon in game two helped us get the win there. Logan pitched solid in game one and our guys came out of the pen and threw strikes. .I thought our bats were good today and lined up. We want to be up and down and we have a good chance coming into the last 2 GNAC series. It should be an exciting Saturday when the opponent comes to town next weekend in Eastern Oregon.”
