MARYSVILLE — After losing the second round of the 3A district tournament to Lynnwood 3-0 May 12, the Marysville-Pilchuck baseball team earned its chance to play a winner-to-state game against Ferndale Saturday, May 16, at Memorial Field in Everett as they defeated Oak Harbor 7-2 in a loser-out game May 13.

Oak Harbor scored its only two runs in the first inning. M-P broke that deficit at the bottom of the first scoring three runs and never looked back.

M-P’s Trey Southard led with two runs scored and a two-run homer in the fourth inning.

M-P changed its approach at the plate to defeat Oak Harbor, assistant coach Ron Burdett said.

“We tell our kids to be aggressive. It’s just a matter of swinging,” Burdett said. “We put the ball in play yesterday, but today we found some holes and took advantage of a few mistakes they made.”

Now with the Tomahawks’ focus on making it to state, the goal is “pretty simple,” Burdett said.

“It’d be great for these guys, especially the seniors, to go to state,” Burdett said. “I’m not really sure where we’ll end up but if we make it past Saturday, it will be fun for these guys.”
