The West Kootenay Diamondbacks continue their winning ways after taking a pair of games from Pullman on Monday.

The Diamondbacks survived a close 12-10 tilt in the first match before bombing Pullman 9-2 in the second rain-shortened game. The double-A Dbacks counted their sixth win in a row in American Legion AA Baseball and sit on top of the Federal Division with a 6-0 record.

Luke Thatcher had a great game behind and at the plate, knocking out a pair of doubles and helping Sean Bartha get the win on the mound.

The Diamondbacks play Medical Lake Saturday at 1 and 3:30 p.m. and return home Sunday for 1 and 3:30 p.m. double bill at Butler Park. Medical Lake sits two games back of the Dbacks in the Federal Division with a 6-4 record, but are currently in a three-game losing streak.
