Winlock gift wrapping wins for Mounties
LACEY – Winlock gave up just four hits but gave up a dozen baker runs in a C2BL baseball affair on Monday in a 13-3 loss to Rainier.
The Cardinals’ defense failed to secure their pitchers and made five mistakes on the way to the Abbreviated Competition of the Rule of Grace. However, during the five innings of the action, the Winlock pitchers also did each other a disservice, as ten combined free tickets were combined between walks and batting battles.
Aiden Eitel was the only Winlock pitcher to hit the board when setting up a 1-2-3 fourth inning with two strikeouts.
Mekhi Morlin continued to swing a hot bat on the plate and showed sneaky speed with a triple in the first inning. Morlin eventually scored on a passed ball. Chris Heikkila had the Cardinals’ only other goal that day.
