Nick Wagner went three for four with an RBI and Jordan Copeland, Darian Ramage, Zane Yanic and Grant Newton all had two hits as the Bend Elks rolled past Walnut Creek (Calif.) 8-4 on Tuesday in nonleague play at Vince Genna Stadium.
Elk starting pitcher Patrick Keane earned the win against his brother John Keane, who threw for Walnut Creek, striking out four while scattering seven hits and four runs over four innings of work. Bend scored five runs in the bottom of the second inning to take control of the game.
The Elks host Walnut Creek again tonight at 6:35 before resuming West Coast League play Thursday against the Bellingham Bells.
