{rebels win}

{from tonight's paper}

Prep roundup: Rebels hurl one-hitter in 11-2 win over Woodburn.
Josh Rudzik and Matt Hettwer combined on a one-hitter as the Rebels collected their third straight Mid-Willamette Conference baseball victory over Woodburn, winning 11-2.The Rebels were the visiting team even though the game was played at South Albany due to poor field conditions at Woodburn.A single on the first pitch of the game from Rudzik was the only hit that the Bulldogs could muster on the day.South Albany unloaded for 16 hits and broke to a quick 4-0 lead after two. A six-run fifth put it out of reach.Tim Herd had three hits, including two doubles and also drove in two for South. Rudzik, Zac Hunter, Bob Belcher, and Josh Heckman all had two hits in the game and Hunter also drove in a pair.Rudzik and Hettwer combined for seven strikeouts and didn’t allow an earned run.“A nice start,” said South coach Chad Angel. “It gives us a little momentum and to have some games under our belts is good. A lot of teams didn’t get in any this week.”The Rebels (3-0), play a non-league doubleheader Saturday at Central.
