Puget Sound Collegiate League baseball
Zack Larsen (Saint Martin’s) reached base five times and drove in four runs on three singles to lead the West Olympia Linx to a 7-6 win over the Olympia Athletics in the first game of a PSCL triple-header at The RAC. CJ Bader (Freed Hardeman), Reilly Fairchild (Aberdeen HS) and Austin Baker (Arkansas State) each scored twice and Ryan Atkinson (Columbia Basin) drove in a run in both the fourth and fifth innings when the Linx built their lead to 7-3 through five innings.
JJ Nazzaro (Gardner-Webb) tripled to drive in a pair of runs for the A’s in the sixth inning to cut the Linx lead to two runs. Joe Crunkilton (Western Nevada) doubled with one out in the seventh inning and was driven in by Sho Nakahama (Olympic College) to cut the Linx lead to 7-6. Nakahama advanced to third but Kegan Duz-Aguilar (Centralia College) got Sam Bisson (Dickinson State) to fly out to center to end the game.
Robby Campos (Olympic College) gave up two hits and struck out six batters in four innings as four Tumwater Brewers pitchers combined to give up just five hits in their 4-2 win over the Lacey Saints in game two at The RAC.
Kevin Afflerbach (Edmonds CC) allowed two base runners in his two innings of relief work for the Brewers and Nick Mailhot (Saint Martin’s, Northwest Christian HS) worked a scoreless seventh before getting into trouble in the eighth inning. Bo Pearson (Pacific Lutheran) tripled and following a walk to Josh Potter (Campbellsville), scored on a single by Jose Acosta (Centralia) to cut the lead to 4-2. Josh Sontag (Saint Martin’s) relieved Mailhot and promptly gave up a single to load the bases but struck out the next two batters and got the final out on a pop up to the first baseman to secure the victory.
Drew Fosnes (Montana State-Billings) went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI and Elias Sablan (Olympic College) and Tyler LaDue (Saint Martin’s) each collected two hits for the Brewers.
