Baseball

Ellensburg, WA -- The Central Washington University baseball team completed the series-opening sweep of Western Oregon University winning, 11-9 and 2-1, as junior Brandon Williams (Auburn, WA, Auburn Mountainview) continued his dominance on the mound this season.

The two wins elevate the Wildcats to 17-12 and 10-8 in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, while the division leading Wolves fall to 19-13 and 12-6 in the GNAC.

The Wolves found the plate, twice, early in game one aided by two fielding errors, but the Wildcats answered quickly in the bottom of the frame with a 2-run homerun by senior Eric Tinnell (Ephrata, WA, Ephrata) to the opposite field.

Junior Zach Reay (Blackfoot, ID, Blackfoot) followed suit in the second inning with his own two-run blast over the left field fence, as the Wildcats would go on to score two runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings.

Starting pitcher, Stuart Fewel (Portland, OR, Wilson), went 6.1 innings allowing 12 hits, 7 runs 5 earned, while striking out five for the no decision.

The Wolves, tied the game in the top of the seventh with four runs of their own as they brought nine men to the plate in the inning.

Senior Scott Stone (Corvallis, OR, Crescent Valley) untied the 8-8 game with his fourth homerun of the year as it snuck its way out over the 376-foot sign in right, and an eighth inning bases loaded walk by senior Josh Potter (Des Moines, WA, Mount Rainier) added a key insurance run.

Junior Cory Welch (Las Vegas, NV, Bishop Gorman) came on to earn his fifth save of the season, working the last two innings and striking out three.

Junior Brandon Williams (Auburn, WA, Auburn Mountainview) improved to 6-1 on the season with his game two win, as he went the distance striking out eight, walking one, and allowing just one earned run.

The one-one pitchers duel lasted into the bottom of the sixth until senior Kasey Bielec (Port Orchard, WA, North Mason) led off with a single and scurried home when designated hitter Jake Levin (Redmond, WA, Redmond) guided a five-hopper by a diving Wolves' third basemen.

Williams, who continues to lead the GNAC in strikeouts (58) closed the door in the seventh with an easy 1-2-3 inning, striking out two Wolves' batters.

The Wildcats will continue the series tomorrow with another double-header starting at noon.

Softball

TURLOCK, Calif. (Apr. 5) – Central Washington University freshmen Sammy Morris (Bothell, WA, Bothell) and Taylor Ferleman (Bellevue, WA, Lake Washington) combined to hit 9-for-16 on the day as the Softball team split their two games in Turlock, CA defeating California State University Stanislaus 4-1 in game two, and losing 5-1 to 15th ranked Humboldt State University in game one.

The Wildcats are now 19-13 on the season and 4-1 at the Tournament of Champions.

Game one: HSU 5, CWU 1

Central Washington faced-off with 15th ranked HSU in its first game of the day and fell behind 2-0 in the second inning. Central answered back by scoring its only run of the contest in the bottom half of the inning on a solo homerun by Jill McDaniels.

The Lumberjacks extended upon their lead by adding a run in the top of the third inning and two more in the seventh to give them the final 5-1 edge over CWU.

Humboldt State outhit the Wildcats 8-6, with four of the CWU hits coming from Morris and Ferleman who were 2-for-4 and 2-for-3 respectively.

Game two: CWU 4, CSUS 1

Central Washington returned to its winning ways in its second game of the day as Morris and Ferleman continued their hot hitting. Ferleman had an RBI triple in the second inning and Morris plated Andrea Hamada (Walla Walla, WA, Walla Walla) on a single to centerfield in the fourth.

After CSUS scored on a wild pitch in the fifth, Hamada gave CWU some insurance runs with a long two-run homerun to left center.

That was more than enough run support for Maria Gau (Woodinville, WA, Woodinville) who notched her 10th win of the season, scattering four hits while striking out six batters.

Central Washington will most likely compete in the Silver Bracket of the tournament tomorrow starting at Noon, and if they win that game they will again at 2:30 p.m.
