WENATCHEE — A late surge from the Spuds came up just short as the Central Washington squad’s difficult season continued with a narrow defeat against Wenatchee 8-7.

After a 1-1 fourth and scoreless fifth inning, the Spuds knocked in five runs themselves in the top of the sixth to retake the lead. A pair of Wenatchee runs in the bottom of the inning erased the brief lead.

Three Spuds finished 2-4 on the day: Zach Valdez, Ebin Carmona, and Kamden Kuykendall. Valdez knocked in three RBIs for the Central Washington squad in the opener, picking up a triple as well.

Wenatchee 7, Central Washington 1

Tied 1-1 after two innings, the Spuds were unable to keep up as the Apple Pack capped off the sweep on the day.

Wenatchee capped their victory in game two with a four-run effort in the bottom of the sixth.

The Spuds didn’t quite generate hits as they had in the first game of the day, finishing with three as a team. Ebin Carmona picked up the sole RBI and was one of three Central Washington players who finished 1-3 in the game. Kuykendall’s triple put him in scoring position to put the Spuds on the board in the second.

The Spuds finished with two errors in the field. Wenatchee finished with seven runs off seven hits, playing error-free after five mishaps in the first game of the doubleheader.

The Spuds, at 0-21, still look to pick up their first win of the year and return to Larson Playfield today for a doubleheader against Wenatchee. The first game is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m.
