Trojans sweep non-region doubleheader

Sam Whitney
Queen earned his team-leading sixth win of the season on Saturday, moving to 6-1 with a 1.05 ERA and 40 strikeouts over 34.1 innings.

Whether facing a regional opponent or not, or firing on all cylinders or not, the Trojans can’t seem to do anything but win.

Everett traveled south for two games last Saturday, the first against Lane and the second against Pierce.

The pitching did the heavy lifting in game one, with starter Wyatt Queen working five scoreless innings, striking out six and allowing only two hits before turning it over the the bullpen.

From there, Cooper McBride, Brandon Brunette and AJ Hendrickson combined to strike out another six batters over the last four innings, giving up just one run.

The offense backed them by scoring four runs on four hits, benefitting from three Lane errors along the way, with RBIs from Jonah Shull, Keaton Fisher and Isaac Hoag.

Game two saw seven different Trojans take the mound, with Landon Welter getting four innings of work from the second thru the sixth. Overall, the staff combined to again allow only a single run and strike out eight while walking four.

Everett got on the board with one run in the first and another in the fourth before breaking the game open with three runs in the seventh. Hoag and Fisher checked in again with RBIs, with Carson Burns and Baylor Hill adding tallies as well. For Hill it was his first RBI of the season, and his first action since Feb. 25 versus Spokane.

While it wasn’t a stellar showing for the offense, the pitching ended up not needing any more help than the lineup was able to provide, and the team won its contests by scores of 4-1 and 5-1.

The Trojans will look to stay hot when they resume regional play this Saturday, April 20 at Bellevue before returning home versus Bellevue on Sunday, April 21.

What is your dream job? My ultimate dream job would be to work as an analytical sportswriter for 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.
