Chewelah gets strong bats from Jake George and Carl Oman…
Chewelah put up a four-spot to open up their Monday game with Medical Lake, setting the tone for the rest of the day when the hitters were clicking and the pitchers were dishing en route to a 11-4 win. It was the Cougars’ 13th straight victory.
Andrew Sweat started things off on the mound for the Cougars, keeping Medical Lake at bay until he was relieved by Jake Jeanneret in the third. In all five Cougars pitchers combined to limit the Cardinals to just four hits on the day.
Not to be outdone by the pitching, Chewelah batters knocked around Medical Lake (3-12, 3-6) pitchers to the tune of 14 hits on the day. Jake George and Carl Oman led the way, combining for five hits and four RBIs. George finished the day 3 for 4 with a pair of RBIs and Oman went 2 for 4 with two RBIs of his own. John Larson added a double for the Cougars (13-3, 7-1).
