After starting off a little on the rough side in the first inning, Josh Burbery settled down on the mound to go the distance, striking out 9, walking 4 and allowing 6 scattered hits for the 11-2 victory over the Omak Pioneers in round one play. “I was a little worried during that first inning,” said Burbery. “I was able to settle down in the second.”
The stands were full of Chelan and Omak baseball fans and the Chelan Booster Club put on a BBQ for everyone.
The Chelan fans were not disappointed. Offensively, Chelan was hitting well and chalked up 11 hits in this game with Evan Reister going 2-2 with a huge home run and 4 RBIs. Cyrus Desmarais was 2-4 with 2 doubles and an RBI. Adam Hendricks also went 2-4 with 2 RBIs.
