Arlington boys come from behind to beat Monroe in extra innings (slide show)

ARLINGTON – Andrew Smith smashed a single down the third-base line past a drawn-in infield to lead the Eagles to a come-from-behind win over Monroe at home Saturday.

Smith’s clutch hit came with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning. Jack Sheward scored the winning run, after starting off the inning with a line-drive single to leftfield.

Smith was 2-for-2 with 2 runs batted in. Sheward added another line-drive single to center in three at-bats. He also was the winning pitcher, coming into the game in the seventh inning after catching the first six frames.

Pitcher Jacob Burkett got off to a rough start for the Eagles, giving up runs in the first two innings. Cole Kramer came in to shut them down for the next few.

Arlington got on the board in the bottom of the fourth, and would have tied it except for a close play at second base. Monroe tacked on a run in the top of the fifth when an errant throw was fumbled into the Eagle dugout.

Fortunately for Arlington, Monroe ace Ryan Lynch went out of the game after striking out three, walking just one and giving up three hits. Instead of popping up and flying out, the Eagles started hitting the ball hard on the ground.

Still trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh, Arlington mounted its comeback.

Levi Wiseman was hit by a pitch and a walk put runners on first and second. A missed bunt attempt led to a runner being thrown out at third. But Cameron Smith picked up the team with an RBI single to make it 3-2. Paul Chung tied it up with a single up the middle. The Eagles couldn’t get the winning run in, however, with a fly out and ground out.

After struggling on the mound his first inning, Sheward struck out two and served up a groundout, leaving to Smith’s heroics.

The Eagles also won their game Friday against Marysville Getchell 5-1.

Both teams had seven hits, but the Eagles made theirs count against Charger pitcher Colby Watts. Owen Bishop was the winning pitcher.

Camdon Anderson had a double and three RBI for the winners, while Michael Tsoukalas went 2-3 with a triple.

Girls softball

The Eagle girls also won big Friday, 11-1 over Cascade.

Lizzie Dursee pitched a three-hitter, while her teammates pounded out 15 and took advantage of four Cascade errors.

Katherine Tsoukalas led the Eagles with two doubles, and Madisyn Estes smacked a triple.

Kayl Allen and Juan Hernandez each notched a goal in Arlington’s 2-0 non-conference home victory over Ferndale Saturday.
