District 5/6 champion Lady Bears advance to state competition

EPHRATA – The undefeated North Central Washington 2B League champion Brewster Lady Bears continued their march to the state playoffs in Yakima with a sweep of three district 5/6 opponents in an eight-team, one-day tournament in the Ephrata Sports Complex, Saturday, May 20.
Brewster will face Asotin in the first round of state competition at 11 a.m. Friday, May 26 at the Gateway Sports Complex in Yakima.

Tri Cities Prep falls

Brewster held the Tri Cities Prep girls to a single run in an 8-1 win in the first loser-out game at Ephrata.
“Defensively, we had some early hiccups in each of the three games,” said coach Rick Miller,” but the kids adjusted well and put the clamps on.”
Maret Miller, Yvette Sanchez, Marlisa Garcia, and Abby Urias had two hits apiece while Cynthia Sanchez, Mikenna Kelpman, Sammi Emigh and Michaun Kelpman each had one hit.
Yvette Sanchez threw 55 strikes in 80 pitches, with five strikeouts, two hits and one walk.
“Yvette had great run support through the order and helped herself with big hits,” Miller said.  I thought we played consistently well throughout the day

Kittitas in five

The Lady Bears came from one run down in the first inning to turn a second inning rally into the game-winning punch against the Coyotes. The defense held Kittitas to a single run in the fifth inning as Brewster added another two in the third and four in the fifth to win by the 10-run Mercy Rule in five innings.
Yvette Sanchez batted in four runs on three hits to lead the Brewster offense.

Downs Dayton

The Lady Bears and Lady Bulldogs played even ball until Brewster turned a four-run third inning into the margin that made the difference at the end of six-and-a-half innings. A Dayton two-run rally in the sixth inning fell short of closing the gap as the Lady Bears won by three.
Michaun Kelpman, Bizzy Stam, Urias, Cynthia Sanchez and Yvette Sanchez each had two hits in the game. Garcia and Emigh had one apiece.
Sanchez threw 99 pitches, struck out four, and gave up 11 hits and a walk for the win.
“I thought we played consistently well throughout the day.” Miller said.
