BROOKINGS — The unbeaten Brookings-Harbor Bruins swept a Class 3A Special District 4 baseball doubleheader from the South Umpqua Lancers on Friday, winning 10-0 and 4-3.

The first game was stopped after five innings due to the 10-run rule. Brookings improved to 9-0 on the season, while the Lancers (5-4) lost their fourth straight.

Jason DeShon tossed a one-hitter with 10 strikeouts for the Bruins in the opener. Andrew Burger was 2-for-2 with two RBIs. Jace Johnson had the lone hit for S.U., singling in the first inning. Johnson took the loss, fanning seven over four innings.

In Game 2, Kade Johnson pitched well in defeat for the Lancers, allowing five hits and two earned runs with four strikeouts and three walks. Kade Johnson also led South Umpqua at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two runs, including a solo home run in the first inning.

"We had multiple opportunities to tie or win the second game," S.U. coach Steve Stebbins said.
