Chelan Goats split with Okanogan Bulldogs

by Richard Uhlhorn


Chelan hosted the Okanogan Bulldogs in a double header last Saturday, May 2, and ended up with a split, winning the opener 10-6 and losing the nightcap 9-4.


Chelan is going into its last home game against Lake Roosevelt on Saturday, May 9, beginning at 11 a.m. This is senior day and the last league game of the season before the team enters post season play.


In game one against Okanogan, Josh Burbery went the distance, giving up six runs on nine hits, striking out six and walking four which was good enough to give Chelan the 10-6 win in this baseball game. Deputy Sheriff Levi Ferguson stopped by briefly to check on Josh's pitching speed. "He was throwing between 74 and 76 miles per hour," said Levi.


Offensively, the Goats got eight hits with Curtis Pusey getting on track with a 2-4 game and a huge homerun that put a big smile on his face. Pusey has been in a hitting slump for several weeks and finally broke out of it.


Adam Hendricks also slammed a huge 2 RBI home run over the left field fence in the first inning to set the tone for game one.


Kyle Nelson and Greg Schultz were both 1-3 at the plate; Evan Reister was 1-4; Alex Brown 1-2 and Niles Desmarias 1-2.


Brown started on the mound in game two and went 6 2/3rds strong innings. Cyrus Desmarias relieved, but the Goats came up short, losing the nightcap 9-4. "We had three errors in this game and the Bulldogs capitalized on them," said Coach Jim Burbery. "We just couldn't fight back."


"Offensively our bats struggled a little and we only got six hits," said Burbery.


Kyle Nelson 1-4, Greg Schultz 1-4, Curtis Pusey 1-3, Evan Reister 1-3, Cyrus Desmarias 1-2, Wesley Field 1-3.
