Another sweep for Clark baseball team



The Clark College baseball team continued its winning ways Saturday, sweeping a doubleheader from Linn-Benton, 5-2 and 7-1 at Kindsfather Field.

Clark (10-2) had 22 hits in the two games as the Penguins ran their win streak to seven games.

Nick Woods hit a two-run home run in a three-run first inning in the first game. Ryan Schockey pitched eight innings of three-hit ball, striking out five with no walks.

“Ryan was in total control,” Clark coach Don Freeman said. “He did a tremendous job.”

In the second game, Clark scattered 12 hits throughout its lineup. Andrew Schenk earned the win, allowing three hits in three innings with seven strikeouts.

What Freeman said he liked from his hitters on Saturday was how the Penguins played small ball.

“You have to be able to bunt, and I was pleased with everyone’s approach to their at-bats,” he said, adding that many of the bunts ended up going for base hits.

Clark is next scheduled to play a doubleheader at Clackamas at noon Sunday.
