In game one of the PSCL season, the Olympia Athletics scored a run in the seventh to tie the game and JJ Nazzaro (Gardner-Webb University) drove in the game winning run in the eighth to lead the A’s to a 6-5 win over the Hawks Prairie Cardinals. Tyler Watkins (Spokane Falls CC) went 2-for-2, scored twice and drove in two runs including the game tying run on a bases loaded walk in the seventh inning. Jeffrey Apigo (Skagit Valley College) went 1-for-3 with a run and two RBIs in the loss for the Cardinals.
Drew Fosnes (MSU-Billings) had the Tumwater Brewers only hit of the day in the first inning but scored what turned out to be the game winning run in fourth when he stole home and the Brewers would capitalize on walks, wild pitches and errors to knock off the Lacey Saints 5-0. Joe Hanley, Nick Mailhot (Saint Martin’s, Northwest Christian), Kevin Afflerbach (Edmonds CC) and Tony LaDue (Saint Martin’s) combined on a five hit shutout for the Brewers. David Tillotson (Centralia College) went 2-for-3 for the Saints.
In the nightcap, the Nisqually Silvers scored four runs in the top of the eighth to take a 5-4 lead but the West Olympia Linx answered back with six runs of their own in the bottom half of the inning to take a 10-5 win. Austin Baker (Arkansas State), Ben Krueger (Oregon Tech) and Cody Evans (Oregon Tech) each had two hits for the Linx while Colby Fitzgerald (Bellevue University) and Travis Shaw (Saint Martin’s) each had a pair of hits for the Silvers.
