OMAK — An Omak man who returned home Saturday to discover two burglars inside retaliated with a baseball bat, sending one of the suspects to the hospital.

A second suspect was also hit but escaped after Dustin C. Smith, 27, discovered them when he and his wife returned to their residence on the Omak-Riverside Eastside Road just before 5 p.m., Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said.
