When Blue Mountain Community College baseball has ducks on the pond, the team wants Palmer's Ben Ross at the plate.

The right fielder has turned into RBI machine over the four games, driving in six runs, including two more in a 10-0 win over Olympic during NWAC play in Pendleton, Oregon.

Ross, of Wasilla Post 35 fame, went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored.

The sophomore outfielder has a current five-game hitting streak that seen his batting average soar from .158 to a more respectable .242.

He has made good contact over that time, striking out just twice in 24 at-bats.
