The Roadrunners took on Edmonds Community College on Friday, May 12, in a non-league doubleheader. The boys split the two-game series with a victory of 7-6 in game one and a 10-2 loss in game two.
In game one LB battled back from a four run deficit. The team gave maximum effort, and played their brand of baseball.
Despite their efforts in game two, they fell to Edmonds in another hard-fought battle.
On Saturday, May 13, the game was unfortunately canceled in the fifth inning due to rain.
The team awaits the results of the upcoming games between Lane Community College and Clark Community College on Sunday, May 14 and Monday, May 15. The Titans must lose at least one game in order for Linn-Benton to skip a regional game and go straight to the championship.
The NWAC Championship will be hosted at Lower Columbia College in Longview, Washington May 25 to 29.
If Linn-Benton keeps a hold of the number one spot in the Southern Region, they will face the East Cross region winner on Thursday, May 25 at 12:35 p.m.
