Undefeated Way continues to be lucky charm for Edmonds

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | May 4, 2015

Sitka’s Brian Way was 4-0 as a reliever and now he’s undefeated after two starts.

And Edmonds Community College is 12-0 when he pitches.

There’s no doubt the 6-foot-7, 270-pound freshman has been a lucky charm, but there’s nothing lucky about what he’s done on the mound.

The right hander is 6-0 with a pair of saves and a 1.10 ERA in 12 games.

His strikeout-to-walk ratio is 23-6 in 32.2 innings.

“I just go out there and try to best the guy at the plate by any means, whether that’s coming out of the pen or starting,” Way told me. “I just do all I can to win us games.”

From the start, he showed no fear. He recorded a save in his second college appearance.

“Being raised playing Juneau and Ketchikan in very intense games since I was 11, I think it made me be able to handle the pressure that college baseball has brought to the game,” Way said. 

Edmonds has won 31 of 38 games in the NWAC and have captured the North Region pennant and secured a playoff berth.
