Goats trample Nooksack Valley over Easter weekend


Wilson was effective through the first three innings and had is curve working nicely as he struck out a few Nooksack batters.

Freshman Breckin Sporeen (31) hammers a ball right on the screws in the first inning against Nooksack Valley. Sporeen has been finding his stroke as of late, evident by the swing above which two-hopped the left field fence on a line.

It was a beautiful Spring Saturday in Chelan for some baseball.

After freshman Connor Wilson led off the inning with a single, he stole second base to put the Goats in scoring position. He would later score on Sporeen’s double to the wall.

 

CHELAN - It finally feels like the Goats baseball team is getting into an offensive rhythm. 

After scoring only 8 runs in their first four games of the season, the bats have woken up and Chelan has scored at least 8 runs in five of their last 10 games. Two of which came over the weekend when Chelan beat Nooksack Valley by a combined score of 19-3 in two games. 

The reason the Goats have been so hot lately is their ability to get going early. Before, Chelan struggled to get runners in scoring position in the first couple innings, but over the last couple games the Goats have been hammering the ball early and often. Additionally, Chelan has been able to pile on runs more frequently, turning little innings into big blowups. That was the case this past weekend as the Goats 10-run ruled Nooksack on the first game and then came out firing in the second game with 6 runs in the first inning. 

In the second game, Chelan continued their hitting display, as they put up 8 runs on multiple hits and won by 6. 

Chelan will look to capitalize on their recent play when they take on Cascade on Saturday, April 22 at Mountain Goat Field. First pitch is at 11 a.m. in the first game and scheduled for 1 p.m. in the nightcap.
