Black Bears Add Two Arms

The Cowlitz Black Bears sign two pitchers to the roster. We are happy to welcome (LHP) Lucas Knowles and (RHP) Alex Tisminezky.

Lucas is a Redshirt Freshman from the University of Washington. He has made seven starts for the Huskies and appeared in 14 games total. Knowles has struck out 32 batters with an ERA of 3.72. He is a big arm and exciting arm for UW. “You are going to like watching this young man pitch. He has some real electric stuff,” Coach Tweit said. Lucas is a Northwest Native, he was raised in Port Orchard, WA and graduated from South Kitsap High School.

Alex is a Sophomore at the College of Southern Nevada and heading to Santa Clara University next season. He resides from Las Vegas, NV where he graduated from Bishop Gorman High School. Tisminezky is big recruit for the Broncos next year. At CSN, he has made nine appearances this season thus far and has an ERA 1.46. “I am very excited to have an arm like Alex’s. He creates versatility for us with all the possible situations we face during the season”, GM Jim Appleby says.

Swing by the office to get your season tickets so you can help welcome Lucas and Alex personally to Cowlitz this summer.
