Saturday, April 28, 2012

The Shorewood baseball team swept Lynnwood with 3-2 victories both Thursday and Friday going into a Monday game at Meadowdale. 

Shorewood takes an 8-6 Western Conference 3A division record (9-9 overall) into a game at Meadowdale at 4 p.m. Monday. Junior varsity teams from the two schools meet at the same time at Shorewood’s home Meridian Park field. 

In Shorewood’s Thursday 3-2 home victory, Chris Giles hit 1 for 3 with a double and 2 RBI; Josh Wilkes hit 2 for 3 with a double and 1 RBI; and winning pitcher Ian Oxnibad struck out five and gave up 3 hits, 3 walks and 1 earned run in 7 innings. 

In the Friday 3-2 victory at Lynnwood, Christian Heideger hit a two-run single in the sixth inning to break a 1-1 tie, and Shorewood held off a late Lynnwood rally to clinch a Wesco 3A district berth. 

With Everett losing to Meadowdale, the Thunderbirds’ victory ensured that they could finish no worse then fifth, good enough for a district spot. Riley O'Brien was the winning pitcher with relief from Sam Boone in the 7th inning. 

The Shorewood junior varsity defeated Lynnwood Thursday at Lynnwood. 12-0, and lost to Lynnwood Friday at home, 8-6.
