MILES — Camanche climbed above the .500 mark as it ran its winning streak to four games Monday by sweeping host Easton Valley on Monday in non-conference high school baseball.
The Indians, who have won 12 of their past 15 games to improve to 14-12, won the first game 14-2 and the second game 8-0.
“I’m happy with the way we are hitting and pitching,” Camanche coach Darryl Cochran said. “Everyone’s contributing up and down the lineup.
Camanche picked up 10 hits in the first game and 11 in the second. Kyler Campie was among the Indians swinging a big bat. He drove in four runs in the opener and had three hits and three RBIs in Game 2. Dylan Busse had two hits in each game and had three RBIs, two in the opener in which he also homered.
“In Game 1, errors hurt us, but our hitting bailed us out,” Cochran said.
The Indians also got strong pitching performances in each game as Easton Valley produced just eight hits.
“Tanner (Atkinson) and Derek (Harksen) threw really well,” Cochran said.
Atkinson was the winner in the opener, a five-inning game in which Tipton got just three hits. Harksen threw a complete-game shutout in Game 2, allowing five hits while striking out eight.
“It was a great outing from our senior leader,” Cochran said.
Cam Larson led Easton Valley with two hits in each game.
