ARLINGTON — The Marysville-Pilchuck baseball team rebounded with a 3-2 win over Arlington April 22 after dropping its first game against the Eagles 6-1 April 21.
With the game tied 2-2 in the top of the seventh, M-P’s Trey Southard kept chipping away to seal the game-winning RBI.
“He’s one of our best hitters. He must’ve fouled out four or five balls, but it’s just part of his mentality,” coach Kurt Koshelnik said. “He wasn’t going to give up and he came out big in the end.”
Landon Riker started the rally with a double, and got to third on a bunt from Nick Anderson.
Closing out on the mound was Zack Barker.
“He’s been our closing pitcher for the last couple of games,” Koshelnik said. “He catches also but we’re still trying to find roles for him so I think that might be a really good role for him.”
M-P improved to 10-4 and made Arlington fall to 6-8.
“I think we have good team chemistry, and we have a lot of kids that don’t quit or give up kind of like today,” Koshelnik said. “And hopefully we win more of these.”
Arlington’s Branden Perdue pitched three relief innings and hit two RBI.
