Exchange Club picks up two Babe Ruth victories


WALLA WALLA - The Exchange Club picked up two more Babe Ruth victories the last two nights, defeating the Eastgate Lions, 10-7, Tuesday before handing Walla Walla Transmission an 18-0 loss Wednesday.

Against WW Transmission, Justin Lemus, Aron Fazzari and Peter Fazzari combined from the plate for the three-hit shutout.

Peter Fazzari led the Exchange with three hits and six RBI. Lemus, Aron Fazzari and Daniel Benavides had three hits each, and Hayden Box and Gavin McEvoy added two each.

On Tuesday, Eastgate led 3-0 early on, including a first-inning home run by Daniel Randolph.

Exchange rebounded in the top of the third, including a three-run homer by Lemus, and a two-run single by Fazzari.

The 5-3 lead wouldn't stand, when Eastgate posted runs in the third and fourth to tie it, 5-5.

In the fifth, Exchange came back to take a one-run lead - 6-5 - when McEvoy reached on an error and scored on a Lucas Fazzari double.

By the bottom of the fifth, Eastgate was almost out of steam. They had a pair of runs, including a "towering home run by Wyatt Wilkes," Exchange coach Rod Fazzari said. The homer was followed by Dalton Broxson RBI single, moving it to 7-6.

It was the last time Eastgate would post points. Exchange came up with a four-run sixth.
