Cardinals club Chewelah in doubleheader
Medical Lake used a pair of 10-run innings that provided plenty of insurance to earn a sweep of Chewelah in Northeast A League softball play last Friday in Medical Lake.
The Cardinals (5-3) watched at the Cougars used a 9-run sixth inning to tie, but Medical Lake bettered that with a 10-run sixth of their own for a 19-9 victory. Kelby Wegner got the win, improving to 4-2 on the season. Wegner contributed to her cause with a 2-hit game, including a double. Faith Keister, Kayla Pruitt and Becky Troutt each also had a pair of hits with Keister also adding a double.
In the second game the Cardinals got a complete game from Shelby Pavao as she picked up her first victory of the year. Troutt, Hailey Cheevers and Chelsea Hamby each had a pair of hits in a game where Medical Lake broke things open with a 10-run third. Wegner also contributed a double.
Medical Lake played at Riverside (4-2) Tuesday and were home versus Lakeside (5-0) Wednesday. They are on the road for a Saturday doubleheader in Kettle Falls (5-4).
