The Weatherford College baseball team swept Vernon College in a doubleheader Wednesday at Roger Williams Ballpark, 6-0 and 11-3.

Sophomore pitcher Jake Lyons was dominant in game one, striking out 13, walking three and allowing three hits over the complete seven-inning game. Three Coyotes hit home runs: Landon Gray, London Green and Garrett Crews.

A grand slam from Granbury High School grad Chance Turney highlighted game two for the Coyotes. Green also homered on a 2-for-4 performance at the plate.

Weatherford sits in fourth place in the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference standings with an 8-6 league record, 18-18 overall.

WC travels to Vernon Saturday and then returns home Wednesday, April 11, to face North Central Texas College.
