DRAIN — The North Douglas Warriors completed a series sweep of the Oakland Oakers on Friday in a Special District 4 baseball doubleheader, winning 4-0 and 7-6.

Brian Erickson pitched a five-hitter in the opener for the Warriors (8-3, 4-2 SD4), striking out nine and walking one. Koldan Frieze knocked in three runs with a two-run double and sacrifice fly, and Cal Parks had an RBI single.

"That was one of the better games Brian (Erickson) has thrown as far as having consistent command," N.D. coach Jeff Davis said. "He located his fastball and his curve was working."

Alex Ramos was 2-for-3 for the Oakers (2-8-1, 0-6).

The Warriors scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to win the nightcap. Parks ripped a two-run triple and Koldan Frieze added an RBI double. Jimmy Barrone contributed a run-scoring double in the fifth.

"We had some timely hits," Davis said.

Austin Frieze was 3-for-4 and Koldan Frieze had two hits in three at-bats. Tyler Kallinger walked three times and scored two runs.

Jacob Brooksby went 3-for-4 with a double for Oakland.

North Douglas is scheduled to host Bandon on April 20 in a nonleague twin bill. Oakland hosts Umpqua Valley Christian Tuesday.
