The Washington baseball team defeated Davis 15-2 and 12-0 to finish perfect in District play this season.
They are scheduled to host Millwood for the Bi-District tournament today (Thursday) at noon.
But officials will have to see what Mother Nature decides first.
Washington beat Davis at home last Friday, 15-2.
Kade Norman went the distance in the five-inning game, striking out four batters while giving up four hits.
Dax McCaskill was a man on a mission in the game. He was 3-3 from the plate with two homers. He drove in six runs and scored three times himself.
The long ball was the Warriors’ friend in the game. They also had home runs from Marlon Moore, Sutton Moore and Jake Wells.
Cam Bates tripled in the game.
The Warriors put five on the board in the first inning, followed by six in the second, one in the third and three in the fourth.
Davis’ two runs came in the fifth and final inning.
In the second game, Nate Roberts controlled the game from the mound and struck out six of the 15 batters he faced.
Bates came on in relief for the final inning.
Bates was 2-4 with two homers for five ribbies.
Wells slugged two home runs as well during a 3-3 night that netted the Warriors another four RBIs. McCaskill was 2-3 with two runs batted in and a double on his stat line.
Washington squared off with Class 4A heavy-weight Tuttle (28-4) on Monday.
They were defeated 3-2 in what Warrior head coach said was a “great” atmosphere.
“It was a State tournament type atmosphere,” he said. “It was their senior night and their fans were packed in there. And we travel really well. It was great.”
Tuttle went big by starting Alex Conover on the mound.
Conover is a Cowley County Community College in California commit.
The Warriors started junior Tristin Babbitt with his 1.299 ERA.
“It was two great performances by the pitchers and both teams competed hard,” Kulbeth said.
Marlon Moore was 1-3 and knocked in both of Washington’s runs.
Roberts was 2-3 and scored a run along with Norman who was 1-3.
“Our guys attacked the night really well,” Kulbeth said. “Both teams left knowing we’re both pretty good. But we also understand we have to be prepared to play every single day.”
Washington is 24-5.
