Bevacqua bombs Blue Devils
COEUR d'ALENE - Mitch Bevacqua belted home runs in his first two at bats and finished with six RBIs as the Coeur d'Alene Lumbermen beat the Spokane Blue Devils in nonleague play at McEuen Field.

Burgess went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and three runs scored, and Bevacqua added a double, finishing the 7-inning game 4 for 5.
Jordan Anderson started on the hill for the Lums, scatttering four hits and striking out two in his six innings.
