College news and notes on this Saturday

Good Saturday morning. College action from last night for you.

Alabama 12, Washington State 4 (game one, doubleheader): Valleyite Issac Mullins was dinged up on the hill for WSU as the SEC’s Crimson Tide rolled in the first of two down in Tuscaloosa, AL. Mullins, a sophomore from North Bend and 2015 Mount Si HS grad, allowed four runs on six hits, walked three and struck out three in four innings of work as WSU’s starting pitcher. He took the loss and drops to 0-2 on the season. ‘Bama took the nightcap as well and swept the pair.

UC Irvine 3, Gonzaga 1: The Anteaters took the opener of the weekend set down in southern California last night. North Bend’s Carson Breshears, a GU junior and 2014 Mount Si HS grad, was 0-3 with a defensive putout as the Bulldog second baseman in last night’s contest.

Corban 2, Oregon Tech 1 (game two, doubleheader): Corban won the nightcap of two at home in Salem, OR, last night in extras on a walk-off, sweeping the twinbill; the Warriors won the opener 4-0. In the nightcap, junior Drew Cotto, from Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, was 0-1 in a pinch-hitting appearance for Corban. Cotto is new this year to the Warriors after transferring from Centralia College, where he spent his first two college seasons.

Concordia-PDX 10, Holy Names-CA 9 (game two, doubleheader): Carnation’s Andrew Willmon proved to be the key on the mound for the Cavs as they held off the hosts to win the nightcap of two and split the pair down in the Bay Area last night. Willmon, a junior and 2015 Cedarcrest HS grad, pitched three solid innings of relief, allowing just two hits and striking out one to earn his first save as a Concordia pitcher. Willmon is new to the Cavs this spring after spending his first two college seasons with Columbia Basin College in Pasco. Holy Names won the opener 6-3.
