Sweets Score Early & Often in 10-4 Win Over Pippins

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA – The Yakima Valley Pippins saw their five-series winning streak snapped Tuesday night, as the Walla Walla Sweets won 10-4 in front of 1,360 fans at County Stadium.

Repeating their performance from Monday night, the Sweets (8-12) scored twice in the first inning, using RBI singles from Mike Paulson and Jordan Frabasilio to take a 2-0 lead against Pippins starter Brandon Williams.

After Williams shut the Sweets down in the 2nd inning, he found himself in trouble again in the 3rd, letting the first six men reach with four of them scoring before exiting the ballgame down 6-0. Reliever Nick Suniga gave up an RBI single to Sean Bouchard after Williams’ departure to score the fifth and final run of the inning and extend the Sweets lead to 7-0.

The Pippins (12-8) surrendered another run in the top of the 4th to make it 8-0, before Suniga settled in over the final few innings of his outing.

After giving up a run in the top of the 7th, the Pippins finally got to Sweets starter Cody Carroll, who had a no-hitter going into the 5th inning. After a single and a walk put two runners aboard, and a balk pushed them to 2nd and 3rd base, Ryan Yamane drove in the first run on an RBI groundout. Alex Guenette, who went 3-4 in Tuesday’s contest, lined an RBI single down the right field line, before a wild pitch would plate another run. Ryan Rosa came up with runners on 2nd and 3rd with two outs, but was unable to further cut into the 9-3 deficit.

Reliever Jay Flaa worked the final 2 1/3 innings for the Sweets, who won ended a four-series losing streak and won just their second series of the season.

The Pippins look to avoid a sweep for the first time this year, as they face off with the Sweets for the final time at County Stadium Wednesday night at 7:05 p.m. The Pippins will present a free post-game fireworks show as part of the series finale, before the two teams head to Walla Walla Thursday to begin another three-game series.
