Isaac Hoag is batting .234 on the season with seven RBIs.

The Trojans played their first regional games of the season on Sunday, going on the road against the Bulldogs of Bellevue College.

Designated hitter Keaton Fisher opened the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning of game one, and was followed by a sacrifice fly off the bat of third baseman Carson Burns to give Everett an early 2-0 lead. Burns checked in again in the third with a run-scoring single of his own to round out the scoring for the Trojans lineup.

Everett starter Wyatt Queen made quick work of the Bulldogs, striking out four over six scoreless innings. From there, Mason Devinney worked around two unearned runs in the eighth and threw three innings of his own to close out the win.

Game two was a breeze for the Trojans on both sides of the ball. The offense pounded out nine runs on 13 hits, with second baseman Axel Puls and right fielder Isaac Hoag highlighting the box score with three hits apiece.

Right hander Ethan Hubbell tossed seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits and striking out five. Southpaw Callum Young pitched the final two frames, allowing an all but inconsequential run on a walk and three hits, striking out three.

For the moment, Everett leads the North Region of the NWAC, and will look to keep it that way next Saturday, March 30 against Shoreline.

Sam Whitney, Managing Editor of Content
What is your dream job? My ultimate dream job would be to work as an analytical sportswriter for MLB.com or FanGraphs, breaking down aspects of baseball and sharing my passion for the game with others. It would also be awesome if I could somehow work my way into a front office job with an MLB organization. When you aren't doing things for the Clipper, what can you be found doing? Away from the Clipper, I can often be found reading or watching anything baseball-related that I can find. Otherwise, I might be spending time with friends, playing with my dog Cashmere, or reading about history. And sleeping. Lots of sleeping. Which historical or fictitious figure do you most identify with?  The fictitious figure I like to identify with is Steve Harrington from Stranger Things. I may not always be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I have my moments, and I'm protective of those I care about and I'm there for them when it counts.
