Thus far Bradbury has logged 19 innings on the mound posting an ERA under one to go along with 24 strikeouts, while Lay has recorded 24 strikeouts and has not allowed a single run in 12 innings of work.
At the plate, Colusa touched up Knights’ pitching for 10 hits starting in the second frame when Emanuel Frias launched his third home run of the season driving in Daniel O’Sullivan who doubled to lead off the inning.
Frias has gotten off to a hot start, leading the team with a .500 batting average, 12 RBI and 1.538 OPS.
In the third inning the RedHawks increased their advantage after Justin Lee smashed a two run double, Clay Randolph delivered on a sacrifice fly and Blake Kalfsbeek knocked in one with a double to center.
Colusa picked up its seventh run when Nick Price stole home in the top of the sixth inning then in the seventh got two unearned runs before Price grounded out to account for the RedHawks’ final run.
O’Sullivan, Lee, Frias and Price each had two hits on the day, while Tyler Oliver collected one.
