Posted: Updated:

Walla Walla, WA---

      The Walla Walla Sweets made a good first impression of the season Friday night, with a 8-0 victory over Corvallis at home.  The bulk of the damage coming in the bottom of the third, when the Sweets scored 6 runs on 6 hits in the frame. 

      Sweets center fielder Alex Boncyzk went 3-for-5 with 2 RBIs.  Also chipping in with two RBIs first baseman Austin Heaps, who hit a triple in the third inning, his only hit on the night.  Third baseman Goose Kallunki went 1-3 with a double and two RBIs in the win. 

    Starting pitcher Ryan Richardson did a good job managing the game on the hill.  Richardson threw just five innings, giving up no runs on four hits, while striking out just one batter en route to victory.
