After an offensive outburst to begin the 2022 season against Cowlitz, the Ridgefield Raptors open West Coast League action Friday night at 6:35 p.m. at home against the Walla Walla Sweets.

In a non-league game Wednesday night, Ridgefield scored 21 runs on 22 hits, going scoreless in just one inning, and hitting three home runs.

The 21 runs are a new record for the Raptors, besting the previous record of 17 runs that was set in 2019. Ridgefield also tied a team record with 22 hits, broke a record with 20 RBIs, and Jacob Sharp’s two home runs tied a team record.

The Raptors now face Walla Walla in the first WCL series of the year; Ridgefield finished the regular season last year against the Sweets. Ridgefield won two of three on the road, making the playoffs by a tiebreaker.

After the three-game series, Ridgefield heads to Canada for two series that begins Tuesday in Kelowna.
