Ranger Baseball Steals One from Edmonds
OC Baseball dropped two at Edmonds on Saturday but was able to split with the Tritons on home turf Monday in the series versus the current leaders of the North.  The win was lead by the pitching duo of Chris Uzzell and Cody Apilado; both graduates of Central Kitsap High School.  "Uzzell pitched a terrific game keeping them (Tritons) off balance.  Cody came into a tough situation with runners on second and third and got us out of the inning." Head Coach Parker stated.  Apilado was credited for the save; he had pitched in high school but this was the first time taking the mound as a Ranger.

Rangers Finish 1-3 Against BBCC
The Baseball team traveled east for the third weekend in a row to play Big Bend Community College in a Saturday/Sunday series.  The Rangers continue to struggle leaving runners on base and are just one or two hits away from drastically changing the outcome of these games.  Coach Parker went on to say, "The pitching was a lot better this weekend, especially for Jerome (Byndloss)."  Byndloss pitched the only win for the Rangers in the series with 4 strike outs, 8 hits, and just 2 earned runs.  OC will host Grays Harbor on Wednesday at the Fairgrounds.  The first of two games begin at 12noon.

Rangers Swept by Yakima Valley
The OC Rangers were on the road again this weekend taking on Yakima Valley with back to back double headers Saturday and Sunday.  OC has yet to put a complete game together this season but Coach Parker thinks that when they do, they will be tough to beat.  Allowing too many walks posed the problem Saturday; and Sunday the defense struggled with errors.  Chris Weik and Ian Hollis were the most consistent players for the weekend and lead the Rangers in batting stats.  Hollis is currently leading the team in hitting percentage at .478 (11 hits, 5 RBI, 2 home runs) on the season.

Rangers Drop Four in the East
Ranger Baseball traveled to eastern Washington this weekend to play a couple of double headers at Walla Walla and Columbia Basin.  The Rangers struggled on the mound and made some fielding errors that lead Coach Parker to believe they are still playing as if it were pre-season.  "We will be having a mental practice today and going over what each one of our guys needs to do to be successful.  We have the talent we just need to work on the mental game."  OC has a week of practice before heading back east to Yakima Valley on Saturday.

Rangers Start Season with Two Wins
The Rangers Baseball Team started their 2014 season perfect with a couple wins over Thompson Rivers University on Saturday.  The Rangers hit the ball really well with a team average of .314 for the two games.  Chris Weik from Renton lead with 5 hits and a .556 average.  Sundays games were cancelled due to weather and makeups are not scheduled.  The Rangers will take the field again on Wednesday when they travel across the bridge to Tacoma for a 12:00pm start.
