The Clark College baseball team rebounded from being swept on Saturday at Centralia to sweeping the Blazers on Sunday at Kindsfather Field.

Clark won Sunday's games 9-8 and 7-1 to even their record at 19-19, 10-10 in NWAACC West Region.

Clark had an answer for every Centralia rally in the first game. The Penguins matched Centralia's three-run fifth inning to turn a 6-4 deficit into a 7-6 lead as Spencer Ramsey and Daniel Walsh drove in the runs.

Centralia scored twice in the seventh for an 8-7 lead, and Clark came back in the eighth on Kyle Vanderkin's two-run double for the winning margin.

In the second game, Ryan Shockey pitched a five-hit complete game with one walk and 12 strikeouts.

A four-run fifth inning put the game away for Clark.

Vanderkin finished the doubleheader 3 for 5 with six RBI.

The Penguins conclude the regular season on Friday and Saturday with a four-game series against Pierce. Friday's games are at Lakewood, and Saturday is at 1 p.m. at Kindsfather Field.
