LYNNWOOD -- The Edmonds CC baseball team keeps rolling, beating Vancouver Island twice on Saturday at Triton Field to extend its win streak to eight games. Both non-league contests were cut short due to the 10-run rule, EdCC winning the opener 14-0 (5) and the nightcap 13-2 (8).
The Tritons scored eight runs in the first inning of game one and never looked back, pushing four more across in the second and single runs in the third and fourth. When the Mariners failed to score in the top of the fifth the game was called.
Kameron Minor (1-0) started and earned his first collegiate win with a five-inning, three-hit effort.
The EdCC offense collected 12 hits, including home runs from Ryan Budnick (2), Matt Becker and Jaime Umbinetti. Both Becker and Umbinetti had four RBI.
Edmonds scored first in the nightcap but were briefly down 2-1 after the Mariners scored twice in the third. The Tritons responded with a run in the home half of the inning to even the score. Edmonds broke out with 11 unanswered runs from the fourth inning on. A two-run triple from Becker in the eighth stopped play.
Austin Lee (1-0) started and earned the win for the Tritons. Josh Evans, Alex Kuniyoshi and Tyler Reeves all threw in relief and non were scored upon.
Edmonds added two more home runs in the game. Brian Orendor's shot left the yard while Ben Roquet's was an inside-the-parker.
Right fielder Chris Osborn was 2-for-4 with four RBI, Becker had two hits and three RBI.
Edmonds was supposed to travel to Pierce on Sunday for a twinbill but those contests were called off due to rain and poor field conditions.
