PENDLETON — A tough start to the spring baseball season continued Wednesday for the Blue Mountain Community College Timberwolves. Spokane swept both ends of a league doubleheader in Pendleton, BMCC’s 10th and 11th losses in a row.

Blue Mountain (2-20, 0-6 NWAACC-E) is still searching for its first win within the NWAACC’s East Region.

The T-Wolves wasted an outstanding pitching performance from Cody Pollack in Game 1. Pollack, who owns one of BMCC’s two victories this season, threw a complete game with nine strikeouts and allowed only one earned run. He was tagged with hard-luck the loss when his batters failed to score, though.

Blue Mountain fell 3-0 in that game, its seventh time shut out.

Pollack boasts a stellar 2.59 ERA on the season, but just a 1-6 record.

Game 2 wasn’t as competitive. Spokane (14-8, 5-1 NWAACC-E) scored seven of its runs in the first three innings and the Sasquatch would keep its distance in an 8-1 rout.

As Colton Loomis had done in the early game for Spokane, Cody McGlocklin pitched a complete game for the victory.

The meat of Blue Mountain’s batting order struck the ball well in the late game as the Nos. 2 through 4 batters combined for a 6-for-12 hitting performance. Dustin Lippert, Jose Texidor and Corleone Lewis each had two hits, but rarely did any of them coincide in an inning.

Texidor had the only RBI for BMCC, scoring Lippert in the bottom of the third inning after he’d singled with two outs in the frame. Texidor’s double would plate the runner all the way from first.

The run cut the deficit to 7-1 at the time.

The T-Wolves will try to break into the league win column again this weekend when they head to Yakima, Wash., for two games against Yakima Valley on Saturday. First pitch of Game 1 is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Parker Field.
