Pippins Complete Sweep With 12-3 Win Over Victoria

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA. – The Yakima Valley Pippins finished off their third sweep of the year, defeating the Victoria HarbourCats 12-3 in front of 1,227 fans at Yakima County Stadium.

For the first time in the three-game series, the Pippins (17-10) scored first, getting another safety squeeze from Jake Roberts, who had one in Tuesday’s ballgame as well, to go up 1-0. They would add two more runs in the 3rd on a sacrifice fly from JC Snyder and an RBI single from Vince Fernandez.

After Victoria scored an unearned run in the top of the 5th, the Pippins pulled away with three more runs in the bottom of the inning, including RBI from Josh McCoy, Taylor Snyder and Shawn Wardian to make it 6-1 after five innings.

Yakima Valley starter Andrew Woods had more than enough run support to carry him from there. The right-hander out of Virginia Military Institute improved to 2-2 on the year after going six innings, giving up six hits, two runs (one earned), one walk and five strikeouts.

The Pippins continued the scoring onslaught in the 7th inning, with five unearned runs against HarbourCats (12-15) reliever Dylan Stowell. Fernandez had the big blow in the inning, a three-run triple off the right field wall to make it 11-2. Fernandez boosted his team lead in RBI, now with 23 on the year. The Pippins outfielder also moved into a three-way tie for third place in the WCL RBI race.

With another sweep in hand, the Pippins head to Bend, Oregon Thursday for a three-game set with the Elks, who moved into a first-place tie with Corvallis in the WCL South on Wednesday night. Game one of the series begins at 6:35 p.m. on Thursday from Vince Genna Stadium.
