Prep highlights: Washougal baseball posts third win of year

Panthers went winless last season



After a winless 2013 baseball season, Washougal isn’t picky about victories.

But Thursday’s 6-5 win over La Center had enough drama to excite even a perennial champion.

Braden Devlin’s two-run home run tied the game with one out in the bottom of the seventh.

Branden Casteel’s fifth hit of the day was a game-winner. He singled up the middle with two outs and a runner on third.

Washougal improved to 3-1 on the season. La Center fell to 2-1.
