Shorewood 2010 Varsity Baseball Team

The Shorewood baseball team qualified for the State 4A semifinals Friday, May 28 at Safeco Field in Seattle after winning both games in regional play in Tacoma Saturday.

Shorewood opened State play Saturday by defeating the top-ranked 4A Puyallup team, 5-3, in 8 innings. The Vikings had won nine in a row

The Thunderbirds then defeated third-ranked Kelso, 6-5, in the final Region III game later Saturday.
Kelso had opened State play by defeating Rogers of Puyallup.

In Shorewood's extra-inning victory over Puyallup High, Trevor Mitsui and Robbie Rusch hit home runs, Jeremy Edwards hit a triple and Conner McKeever had a double. Blake Snell was the winning pitcher.

Against Kelso (20-4), Kevin Moriarty struck out seven in a complete game and Mitsui doubled and drove in a pair of runs for the Thunderbirds.

Unranked Shorewood (18-9) will meet No. 8 Richland at 7 p.m. Friday at Safeco Field. The winner qualifies for the State final Saturday, May 29.

Shorewood’s two regional victories continued its amazing late-season run with its fourth and fifth consecutive loser-out victories.

Shorewood came into the tournament as the No. 3 team from the Northwest District. The Thunderbirds entered the District tournament as the No. 4 4A team from the Wesco South and after a play-in victory over the No. 5 team from the Wesco North.
