Roadrunners Take Southern Conference: LB makes short work of their four-game series against Chemeketa
The Roadrunners were merciless against the Chemeketa Storms at home May 6 and May 7 in a battle to win the Southern conference.
LB seemed to be hitting the sweet spot as they dominated all aspects of the game. After last week’s debacle against Mt.Hood, where a fight broke out while the Roadrunners were up to bat, LB players Logan Hatley and Jack Bauer both had a three-game suspension. This gave Spencer DesPiens a chance to shine behind the home plate. DesPiens also had an amazing game at bat, where he was able to hit a two run home-run. This, along with great teamwork all around, contributed to the team’s 10-4 victory.
LB continued their dominance in game two on Saturday, with a score of 4-2. They finished the series on Sunday sweeping the Storm by scores of 13-1 in game one and 5-2 in game two. The Roadrunners still sit at the top over their conference rivals Lane Community College, with a record of 18-5. The Roadrunners will take on Mt. Hood Wednesday, May 10. They will also play Edmonds Community College for a four-game home series, with two games Friday and two games Saturday. These games will be in celebration of Sophomore Week, a series which honors the Sophomore players.
