News services

PASCO – Jonah Callaghan struck out 10 in the second game Wednesday to help Columbia Basin defeat Community Colleges of Spokane 6-0 and complete a sweep of their Northwest Athletic Conference baseball doubleheader.

Ryan Sanders drove in three runs in the opener to spark an 11-4 win for the Hawks (18-14, 6-8).

The losses knocked the Sasquatch (23-9, 10-4) out of a first-place tie in the East Region with Yakima Valley (30-6, 12-2), which swept Walla Walla.

Callaghan scattered four hits over seven innings. Alexander Orejudos’ two-run triple in the sixth gave the Hawks a 5-0 lead.

In the opener, Sanders and Luke Shekeryk had two-run singles during a six-run third. Jadan Vandervert had an RBI single during the Sasquatch’s three-run fifth.
