SUTHERLIN — The Sutherlin baseball team swept a pair of Class 3A Special District 4 games from Cascade Christian on Friday, winning 6-1 and 8-3. 

Tanner Marlin pitched an outstanding complete game win in the first contest, striking out 13 and walking none for Sutherlin (6-7, 3-0 FWL). Cade Meisner earned the win in the nightcap with 4 2/3 innings of work.

Steven Hagar had a productive day at the plate for the Bulldogs, going 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBIs and then hitting 3-for-4 with two RBIs in the second game. Payton Hope went 3-for-3 in the first game. Meisner went 2-for-4 with three RBIs in Game 2 to lead the Sutherlin offense. 

Caleb Knight took the loss in Game 1 and Sam Martin was the loser in Game 2. 

Sutherlin will host St. Mary's on Tuesday.
