Triton baseball team beats Mount Hood

NEW_tritonThe weather still wasn’t cooperating but that didn’t stop the Edmonds Community College baseball team from posting an 8-4 victory over Mount Hood at Triton Field Sunday.

Edmonds improved to 2-1 on the year with the win. The team’s game versus Vancouver Island scheduled for 4:15 pm was cancelled due to rain.

The Tritons jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first after Matt Becker singled, stole both second and third, and then scored on a sac fly from Ryan Budnick.

Edmonds put up seven runs in the third after sending 12 batters to the plate. Budnick and Keanu Puha collected back-to-back two-run doubles to lead the Triton outburst.

The Saints would score four runs in the next half inning when Nick Gawley clubbed a grand slam to left. But that blast would end the game’s scoring.

Triton lefty Zach Johnson (1-0) picked up the win after a six inning start in which he yielded four runs on four hits with eight strikeouts. Austin Lee threw three scoreless frames for the save.

Michael McCall (0-1) suffered the loss for Mount Hood (0-3) after he gave up eight earned runs in just three innings of work.

Edmonds had eight hits with Budnick and Becker each going 2-for-4.

The Tritons will travel to Wenatchee next Saturday for four games over the weekend there with hosts Wenatchee Valley and Everett.
