The split left the defending NWAC champion Yaks, who are ranked eighth in the most recent coaches poll, third in the region at 10-6 and 24-12 overall. Big Bend is 7-9 and 19-11.

Yakima Valley hammered out 19 hits in the second game, which helped the Yaks overcome five errors which led to four unearned runs.
