Walla Walla Community College baseball sweeps Centralia

The Warriors’ bats show no rust as WWCC gets 29 hits and scores 23 run in a pair of runaway victories over visiting Centralia in the season opener.


WALLA WALLA — The Walla Walla Community College baseball team opened its 2013 season team by pounding out 29 hits and plating 23 runs in a doubleheader sweep over Centralia, 14-7 and 9-6, Saturday.

“I thought we swung the bats very well,” WWCC coach Dave Meliah said. “Especially Jarrod Turner, Corey Morris and Tony Salas. We also did a good job of executing situations offensively.”

Turner smacked three doubles and a single in the first game.

Corey Morris ripped five hits (two doubles) and walked twice on the day.

Salas contributed three singles in a standout performance in the nightcap.

Jake Conover pitched five innings of two-run ball in game one to get the win.

Jake Campeau gave up three runs over seven innings to earn the game-two triumph.

“Jake Campeau threw a great game in game two,” Meliah said. “He got ahead of hitters and was able to use his off-speed pitches to his advantage.”

The Warriors mixed and matched the lineup in the two early-season games.

“Overall, a lot of new players got their feet wet and it was a great way to start off the season,” Meliah said.

The Warriors host Prairie Baseball Academy for a twin bill today at 11 a.m.
