BREWSTER – The Bears varsity baseball team continued its winning streak with 11-2 and 8-0 wins over the Okanogan Bulldogs on Saturday, May 8.
“We are officially in the midst of a winning streak now and we are going to finish this season strong and going to compete next weekend,” head coach Todd Phillips said. 
“AJ Woodward finally got that much deserved win, going the entire way for the second time this season,” said head coach Todd Phillips. “He tallied 13 strike outs which is the second most for any pitcher I’ve coached.”
Phillips said a crowd of former players showed up to celebrate the win.
“It makes you very grateful for the kids you have had the opportunity to coach,” said Phillips. “Even had a player from my first season in Republic show up.”


The Bears struck first when Tyson Schertenleib hit his third double of the season, Brewster worked its way to loaded bases before Schertenleib scored on Brady Wulf’s RBI single.  
“We broke it open in the second. Arnie Arevalo reached on an error and Woodward homered,” said Phillips. “Schertenleib followed with a home run of his own.”
 The Bears then went on a little two-out rally when Reese Vassar and Wulf reached base on errors, Kelson Gebbers doubled to plate one of them. The Bulldogs committed two more errors that led to three more Brewster runs. 
“Woodward ran into a little trouble in the fourth and had his only really rough inning,” Phillips said.
 Then Okanogan got on the scoreboard with two runs off four hits.


“We took the lead right back to what it was when Vassar reached on an error, stole second and scored on Wulf’s at bat,” said Phillips. “Eric Ramirez then scored off the bat of Nico Maldonado. We added two more in the fifth when Woodward helped himself off by singling and then scoring on Schertenleib’s double.  Schertenleib would advance on a sacrifice fly and then score on Vassar’s single.”

The Bears held Okanogan scoreless in the second game as Phillips describes the tempo of the win:


“Schertenleib pitched another gem for us today, only giving up two hits and throwing our first shutout of the season,” said Phillips. “Okanogan is going to be really good in a couple years and we are going to see some of those Okanogan and Brewster rivalry battles for titles like the days of yore.”
“The scoring started off in the first with Schertenleib helping his cause by singling and advancing on a passed ball and a wild pitch before scoring on Reese Vassar’s single,” said Phillips. “We added three in the third when Woodward started things off with a walk, Schertenleib doubled, and the runners advanced on an error.”  
“Logan McGuire grounded out to score one and Vassar reached on an error and scored on Kelson Gebbers’ two-out single,” said Phillips. “In the fourth, Arnie Arevalo doubled then reached third on a wild pitch and scored on a second one.”
The Bears scored their final three runs in the fifth inning.  
“Brady Wulf singled, advanced on an error and went to third then home on wild pitches,” said Phillips. “Kelson Gebbers and Maldonado were walked back-to-back. Gebbers came all the way around on wild pitches and Maldonado scored on an RBI ground-out by Arevalo.”
