The Clark College baseball team may have been visitors on their own field, but it was still home-field advantage.

The Penguins swept an NWAACC West Division doubleheader from Green River on Saturday, winning 7-0 and 10-6 at Kindsfather Field. The games were originally scheduled for Auburn but moved due to weather.

In the first game, Tj Pruneda and Stevenson High grad Zach Prosser combined on a four-hitter.

Jordan Swofford was 2 for 4 with two RBI, and Kyle Vanderkin was also 2 for 4.

In the second game, Daniel Walsh and Skyview High grad Spencer Ramsey were each 3 for 4, and Swofford and Vanderkin each drove in two runs.

Kevin Hamann picked up the win, throwing four innings with five strikeouts.

Clark (12-16, 3-7) and Green River (7-21, 1-8) meet again in a doubleheader today at Kindsfather Field with the first game scheduled for 1 p.m.
