Bears remain on top of Central Washington 2B baseball


Bear’s second baseman Joe Taylor gets a force-out on Pateros runner Max Ewing.

Logan Robinson fields a shot between second and third base.
On Brewster’s side, freshman Kade Kelpman ‘had a productive day at the plate,” said coach Todd Phillips. “He personally was responsible for eight runs on the day, which is a good day for someone who hits seventh for you.”

BREWSTER – With a league loss apiece to Lake Roosevelt and Liberty Bell, the 12-2 Brewster Bears varsity baseball team remain on top of the North Central Washington 2B League after handing a doubleheader 7-1 and 16-2 loss to Pateros at home last Friday, April 21.
The Billygoats managed to avoid a shutout in the first game when Tag Easter came home on a bases-loaded balk by the Brewster pitcher that allowed the score.
In some heads-up defensive play, Pateros first baseman Jeremy Piechalski made all three of Brewster’s outs on a grounder to first, an infield pop fly and a well-hit line drive that Piechalski caught.
Pateros’s Logan Robinson pitched the first game and hit a double in his first at-bat in the second game on 2-3 hitting.
On Brewster’s side, freshman Kade Kelpman ‘had a productive day at the plate,” said coach Todd Phillips. “He personally was responsible for eight runs on the day, which is a good day for someone who hits seventh for you.”
Kelpman was one-for-one last Friday but along the way had three sacrifices, two walks and four runs-batted-in (RBI) to score eight of his teammates.
“Anthony Olvera played in basically his first game of the year and pitched a complete game in the second game,” said Phillips. “We really need some innings to be eaten up by somebody so we could rest our arms a bit, and he gave us more than expected.”
The coach added that Olvera’s performance was “not bad for an eighth grader’s first start.”
Overall Phillips said that in addition to superb defense, the Bears’ “bottom half of our lineup did a good job creating offense…something that has been really hurting us.”
The Billygoats were scheduled to play at Manson, Tuesday, April 25, while Brewster hosted Tonasket at home. On Saturday, April 29, the Bears will be at Manson and Pateros will travel to Waterville-Mansfield.
