Beacons Take Weekend Series Against Warriors

Alisha Alexander | LC State Assistant Athletic Director-Sports Information

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – The Bushnell Beacons came prepared on Saturday in a rain-soaked non-conference doubleheader with No. 3 LC State. Bushnell earned the series win with a sweep of the twin bill.

The losses move the LC State record to 10-6 on the young season.

“Give all the credit to Bushnell this weekend,” Head Coach Jake Taylor said. “They played better all-around baseball than us and it showed on the scoreboard.”

GAME ONE: Bushnell def. No. 3 LC State 7-5

The Beacons put up two runs in the second before Shane Spencer settled in over the next few innings. Bushnell pitching held the Warriors off the board through the first five innings before LC State found its offensive footing.

Nick Seamons led the top of the sixth off with a single and Jake Gish knocked him in with a base hit and errors on the play. Brandon Cabrera tied the game with a double down the right field line and Pu’ukani De Sa gave LC State a 4-2 lead with a two-run blast.

Bushnell answered in the bottom of the sixth with a pair to tie the game before rain set in to send the game into a delay for 15 minutes. The Beacons tallied two more after the pause to take a 6-4 lead.

The Warriors manufactured a two-out run in the top of the eighth. De Sa singled and Jack Sheward doubled to put two on. A passed ball brought the Warriors within one, 6-5, but Bushnell answered with one to secure the lead.

Booth, De Sa and Sheward each had two hits in the game and De Sa drove in two runs.

GAME TWO: Bushnell def. No. 3 LC State 11-2

LC State scored in the first half inning to take an early lead in game two. Seamons walked and took second on a groundout. Gish knocked in the run with a base hit up the middle. Seamons drew another walk in the third and moved to third on a groundout and wild pitch. Gish drove in Seamons with an RBI-groundout for a 2-0 advantage.

Hiroyuki Yamada worked around a one-out walk with a 1-6-3 double play to end the fourth.

Bushnell capitalized on two big hits and three free passes to take over the lead in the sixth. The Beacons tallied three runs and held the lead for the remainder of the contest.

Gish led LC State with two hits and two RBI.
