Bruins beat rival Richland


SELAH - Walla Walla got a full count, two-out RBI double from Daniel Lake in the fourth inning of the Bruins' game with Richland Saturday in American Legion baseball to score the winning run in a 4-2 victory over the Knights.

Lake went 3-for-3 with a sacrifice bunt in the game and pitcher Luke Reardon got the complete game victory.

Anthony Arellano knocked game-tying RBI single in the third.

Reardon wasn't overpowering, with only two strikeouts, but limited the Knights to just two runs.

"Anytime you limit a Richland team to two runs, you know you've thrown well," Walla Walla coach Jason Parsons said.

The Bruins will play against the Yakima Valley Peppers at 1 p.m today.

"Our team is really coming to the ball park to play with a lot of confidence," Parsons said. "I hope that continues."

Walla Walla played error-free baseball in the game, while the Knights committed two miscues.

Kelton Fulmer and Davide Pontarolo also contributed hits in the game for the Bruins.
