EVERETT — The Marysville-Pilchuck baseball team’s season came to an end when they lost the winner-to-state game to Ferndale 11-6 May 16 at the 3A district third-place game.

M-P’s starting pitcher, Parker House, threw for six strong innings and the Tommies seemed to have the game won ahead 6-2 going into the sixth.

But the luck for M-P turned around in that same inning when pitcher Zack Barker took the mound with the intent of closing the game for M-P.

M-P gave up nine runs allowing Ferndale to break away with a 11-6 lead that held to the end.

“Parker, my starter, did a good job but he was getting tired, and I thought he’d thrown long enough and we were in a comfortable enough spot to bring in Zack,” coach Kurt Koshelnik said.

After M-P’s disastrous sixth inning, Koshelnik then switched out Barker with Logan Sewell, who helped M-P hold Ferndale to no more runs in the final inning, but M-P couldn’t score in any runs.

“The thought was if Parker got in trouble early we would go to Logan,” Koshelnik said. “He was in there for the pinch for us.”

M-P’s Landon Riker hit a double with three runs scored, and teammates Tristen Southard and Nick Anderson added a pair of doubles each.

M-P finished its season 11-4 in conference and 16-8 overall.
