Centralia College baseball is still searching for its first win after dropping a doubleheader to Edmonds, 2-0 and 1-0, in back-to-back pitching duels Friday at Wheeler Field in Centralia.
Centralia College alum Dererk Beairsto was solid on the mound in Game 1, striking 10 batters and allowing just two runs in 6 ⅔ innings.
But the Tritons’ starter was even better, throwing a complete-game shutout with just one error.
Blazers reliever Ayden Ruminsky pitched 2 ⅓ innings, retiring seven straight batters. Offensively, the Blazers were led by Kadin Miller’s two hits, while Jaden Fulsher added one hit.
In Game 2, Keegan Adams started on the mounts, going five innings while giving up one run. Nolan Patterson came in relief, striking out four batters and retiring nine straight in three innings. Kobe Matsen closed for the Blazers, striking out two.
Offensively, Ryan Morrison collected two hits, while Jeremy Bierra, Matthew Beckworth and River Terry each had one hit a piece. The Blazers finished with three errors on defense.
“I think we're a young team working on our approach at the plate,” Centralia College first-year skipper Ben Harley said.
Centralia College falls to 0-8 overall and will host Skagit Valley Community College on March 5.
