Challengers, Loggers split twin bill

Prep Roundup

PROSPECT ' Cascade Christian bounced back impressively in a District 6 baseball doubleheader against Butte Falls/Prospect Saturday.

After absorbing a 3-1 loss in the first game at the hands of pitcher Darryl Swearingen, the Challengers erupted for a 25-2, five-inning win in Game 2.

Cascade Christian batted around in the first inning and scored seven runs en route to its first league win. It is 7-8, 1-5 in District 6.

Sophomore catcher Jordan Banks led the way for the Challengers, going 4-for-4 and driving in four runs. Danny Sha was 3-for-4 with four RBIs. Aaron Grissom and Kyle Campbell each had two hits and three RBIs.

Campbell pitched a three-hitter in the nightcap.

In the first game, Swearingen improved to 7-1, allowing six hits, striking out 15 and walking three.

— They really struggled hitting his junk, said Butte Falls coach Randy Stephenson of Swearingen, who throws four pitches. It was working pretty good today, especially his curveball.

Butte Falls (10-6, 3-3 Dist. 6) scored all three runs in the third inning. Chris Stephenson led off with a double, and Lance Strickland walked. Swearingen doubled in Stephenson, and after Strickland was out on a fielder's choice, Jacob Schultz and Joey Knighton rapped RBI singles.

Swearingen and Stephenson each had two hits.

Ryan Ziegler was 3-for-4 for Cascade Christian.
