T-Wolves shake off injury bug to take two from Yakima; it returns Sunday in lopsided losses to WVC

Defense, timely hitting, pitching, bunting and baserunning all played keyed roles in BMCC’s twinbill sweep of visiting Yakima, April 28.

The T-Wolves banged out 11 base hits, got 4-hit shutout pitching from Megan Alexander and played errorless ball in winning the first game, 8-0.

Cheyenne Friend backed Alexander’s pitching with a homer and a run-scoring single. Randi Kostner, Jordan Bennett, Alexander and Megan McIntyre all had two hits each for  BMCC.

Bennett got the mound decision in the second game with relief help from Alexander.

Kostner drove in two runs and Bennett added a pair of base hits.

Paige Aldred aided the cause with three sacrifice bunts.

On Sunday, however, it was ALL Wenatchee as the Knights won 10-0 and 16-0 in a pair of 5-inning games.

“They put on a demonstration in hitting, fielding, pitching, baserunning and hustling,” said BMCC coach Tom Mauldin. “We had no answer for them. They are No. 1 for a reason.

In the first game, Kostner had two singles and McIntyre singled. The other 10 hits in the game belonged to Wenatchee.

In the second game, hits were harder to come by as Kirstie Thomas allowed the T-Wolves only a second-inning base hit by Kendal Weber.

BMCC is 12-20 on the season. WVC is 32-5.
