WENATCHEE -- The Edmonds CC baseball team posted a pair of wins Friday, beating Everett 10-6 and Wenatchee Valley 17-0. Starters Torin Dooley and Andrew Kemmerer each earned a win while the Triton offense pounded out 27 runs on 31 hits.
Dooley (1-0) took a no-hitter into the fifth inning of the afternoon game versus defending champions Everett. The offense had scored 9 runs behind him. The Trojans scored four runs in the fifth to close the gap to five and then pulled closer with a single runs in the sixth and ninth, but EvCC could get no closer against reliever Kevin Lanto who closed out the game with three solid innings of work.
The Tritons put up 14 hits against two Knight hurlers, including 10 hits and 8 runs on starter Anthony Blackie. A 5-run second, followed by three more runs in the third, chased Blackie in favor of Tanner Braun.
Six EdCC batters had at least two hits paced by 3-for-4 games by outfielder Matt Becker and second baseman Tyler Baker. First baseman Ryan Budnick, third baseman Jaime Umbinetti, catcher Tanner Wessling and outfielder Chris Osbourne had two hits each.
Due to an extra-inning contest between Everett and WVC in the afternoon, EdCC's nightcap did not wrap up play until 11:27 pm. The Tritons didn't have any issues with the late time, playing flawlessly on the mound, in the field and at the plate.
Kemmerer (2-0) tossed six shutout innings, yielding just one hit and fanning 11 batters. The sophomore right hander now has 24 strikeouts in two starts.
EdCC led 9-0 by the time Kemmerer was removed in favor of Kameron Minor in the seventh. The Tritons would score in every inning but the seventh, capped by an 8-run eighth. Josh Evans threw a perfect eighth for EdCC before play was halted.
Edmonds pounded out 17 hits led by Becker, Kyle Olson and Ryan Archibald with four hits apiece. Becker drove in 3 runs and scored 5 times with Olson hitting a homer and plating four runners. Keanu Puha was 2-for-4 with 2 RBI.
Edmonds (4-1) faces Everett at 10:30 am, followed by a 1:00 pm tilt versus Wentatchee Valley.
