Zach Ziebell allowed one hit over six innings as Columbia River baseball opened its season with a 3-0 win over Prairie on Thursday.
Ziebell allowed only a single to Sam Apodaca in the fifth inning and a walk in the third. In both those innings he escaped jams with two runners on due to two of Columbia River’s three errors.
The host Rapids, who reached the Class 2A state title game last year, scored all their runs in the first inning. Chris Parkin led off with a single before Noah Larson’s double. Harrison Hoffarth and Cole Backlund followed with RBI singles
Parkin pitched the seventh inning in relief, allowing just a walk to close out the one-hitter.
