Young Waitsburg-Prescott team both ends of baseball doubleheader

TCP explodes for 23 hits to sweep Waitsburg-Prescott.


PRESCOTT - Tri-Cities Prep brought its lumber here Saturday in opening non-conference baseball action.

The Jaguars pounded out 23 hits, including two four-baggers, in sweeping Waitsburg-Prescott, 16-6 and 21-5.

"We're young," W-P first-year coach Dustin Snedigar said. "We're working on fundamentals and the scores don't reflect how hard we are working."

Joe Purdin blanked T-C Prep through the first three innings of the opener and W-P took a 6-0 lead to the top of the fourth.

The Jaguars exploded for eight fourth-inning runs and finished with an 11-hit 16-run attack in winning 16-6.

Dalton Estes, Kevin Raver and Purdin picked up the only W-P hits.

In the nightcap, W-P, behind Zach Bartlow, took a 1-0 lead to the top of the third. Again, the Jaguars exploded for five runs, but W-P answered with four of its own in the home third.

A five-run fourth put this one into the T-C Prep win column and the Jaguars closed the deal with 10 runs in the seventh.

Tre Brannock, Bartlow and Lucan Gerke collected W-P hits in the nightcap.

W-P travels to T-C Prep Tuesday for a single non-conference game.
