PENDLETON - The Walla Walla Bears came away tournament champions here Sunday.

The Bears won all four games they played, down to the 4-3 championship victory over the Hodgen Distributing Red Bulls Sunday afternoon.

Pitching helped them win, said Bears head coach Blaine Mercado.

"All our pitchers this weekend did a great job," he said. "We played four games in 28 innings, with 27 scoreless innings. It was a great weekend for us."

The independent Bears, ages 17-20, play mostly legion teams and tournaments. The Bears are 7-6 overall.

The Bears head to Kennewick for the Bandit Bash tournament beginning this Thursday.
