LONGVIEW — Sophomore Zach Johnson pitched a two-hit shutout over eight innings, striking out six to lead the Edmonds Community College baseball team to an 8-0 victory over Lane Community College in the opening round of the NWAACC Championship tournament on Thursday.

The Tritons pounded out 13 hits and took advantage of four Titon errors, jumping out to an early 6-0 lead after two innings, giving Johnson, who improved to 9-1 on the season, plenty of runs to work with.

Sophomore DJ Oliver took over pitching duties in the ninth for Edmonds, retiring the Titons in order.

Jackson High School alum Kyle Olson went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI and sophomore TC Florentine went 2-for-4 with two RBI to lead the Tritons at the plate.

Edmonds will face the winner of the Pierce-Columbia Basin matchup in the second round today at 7:35 p.m.
