It’s been a perfect season thus far for the RedHawk baseball team as it extended its win streak to 12 straight games by sweeping a double header 12-1 and 6-1 in Fort Bragg last Saturday afternoon.
Pitching has been a main source of the RedHawks’ success and that trend continued as they stuck out a combined 11 Timberwolf batters while allowing just three hits and one earned run in the two games.
To begin the day, Colusa sent senior Drew Bradbury to the mound where he gave up just two hits and struck out six before giving way to freshman Luke Kalfsbeek, who turned in two clean innings to close out the game.
The RedHawks used the long ball to break open the game open as Ethan Lay launched a three run bomb in the sixth inning while Emanuel Frias led off the seventh with a solo shot as both finished 2 for 4.
Bradbury also collected two hits and drove in a pair of runs.
In the late game, Colusa jumped out to a 4-0 first inning lead despite getting just one hit, an RBI double off the bat of Daniel O’Sullivan and never looked back in the five inning contest.
While the only other RedHawk hit was turned in by Bradbury, Colusa was able to capitalize on five free passes and three errors by the Timberwolves.
A combined effort by Lay, O’Sullivan and Frias on the hill kept Fort Bragg from mounting any serious threat.
Colusa (12-0) was on the road in Paradise on Tuesday, should be at Las Plumas in Oroville today and return home tomorrow to face Paradise again.
