The Wahkiakum Mules baseball team continued to dominate the Central 2B League winning two more double headers this week. The Mules are 14-0 in league, 14-1 overall.

Last Wednesday in Kalama, the Mules won the opening game 2-0. James Anderson pitched all seven innings, facing 24 batters. He struck out 10, walked three and allowed two hits and no runs.

The team won the second game 8-0. Terris Record started on the mound, pitching four innings and facing 18 batters. He struck out eight, walked three, allowed two hits and no runs. Zach Brown pitched the final three innings. He faced 10 batters, struck out eight and walked one, allowing no hits and no runs.

Great pitching and defense with timely hitting got it done," Coach Marc Niemeyer said. "James, Terris, and Zach combined for 26 strikeouts. We left 25 baserunners stranded today so we need to execute better with runners in scoring position."

On Monday, the Mules hosted Toledo in a double header.

Luke Brown hit two home runs and a triple, and drove in seven runs to lead the team in the first game, which the Mules won 12-0. Tristan Collupy also hit a homer and had two RBI. Ashden Niemeyer had two doubles and drove in one run. Casey Wilson and Chance Cothren also had one double apiece.

Anderson pitched all five innings, facing 17 batters. He struck out 10, walked one, and allowed three hits and no runs.

The Mules won the nightcap 11-0.

Tristan Collupy rounds second on his home run.

Record pitched two innings, faced seven batters, and struck out two. He allowed one hit and no runs. Niemeyer pitched one inning. He struck out two of three batters and walked one, allowing no hits and no errors. Z. Brown stepped in for the final two innings, striking out five of six batters and allowing no hits and no runs.

"It was a beautiful day for baseball," Coach Niemeyer said. "We had 26 hits today with four home runs. It was great to finally see the ball dropping for us. All pitchers had great command of the mound today."

The regular season ends on Friday for the Mules with a double header at home against Toutle Lake, which begins at 3 p.m. The district playoffs begin on May 5, and if the Mules continue to hold first place, will be played at home.
