Sweets Drop Game One vs Cowlitz

Sweets Shutout vs Cowlitz

WALLA WALLA, WA-  The Walla Walla Sweets struggled in their first game against Cowlitz as the Black Bears would erupt to take the initial contest 10-0 from Borleske. With the loss, the Sweets move to 2-8 in 2023.

Cowlitz got runners on in three of the first four innings, and in the third inning, they would finally get a few across. Eli Lopez and Carter Monda started the inning getting on as both would come in to score to start a long night for Walla Walla. However, Lane Funneman came in as a replacement for starter Francisco Lopez who loaded the bases in the inning but Funneman would close the door with one pitch having Nick Miller fly out to right.

Cowlitz would keep the foot on the gas pedal by scoring 7 runs in the final three innings. 

Offensively the Sweets would struggle to find their way on the night being blanked for the first time in 2023.
