ALBANY, Ore. — Logan Hanson's two-out single in the bottom of the ninth inning allowed Richard Mascarenas to score from second base to lift Linn-Benton to a 3-2 win over visiting Blue Mountain Sunday afternoon.

The win improved Linn-Benton's record to 7-1 on the season. Blue Mountain dropped to 5-4. 

Ethan Whitney (1-0) picked up the win for the Roadrunners.

Mascarenas, who also scored in the fifth inning to tie the game at 2-2, reached on a double down the right field line, setting up Hanson's heroics. Mascarenas and Hanson each tallied two doubles on the day and Hanson added a single and two RBI's.

Both games of today's sweep of Blue Mountain came in dramatic fashion. In Game One, Dequan Dennis-Lee's sacrifice fly scored Marcus Lydon in the bottom of the ninth to break a 6-6 tie.

The Roadrunners next travel to play at Chemeketa in Salem on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m.
