Shorecrest baseball news

Friday, March 22, 2019

After a few tough losses to start the season, the Shorecrest Varsity baseball team bounced back with two wins this week. On Tuesday night, March 19, 2019 under the lights at Shorecrest, the Scots won a pitcher’s duel over Kamiak, 2-1. 

Gannon Dow started on the mound and dominated the Knights over the first 6 innings, striking out 9, allowing just two hits, and walking one batter. With Davis Stallings and Miles Iverson providing the RBI’s to give the Scots the lead, Alex Culver came on to close out the game. After the lead-off batter in the top of the 7th reached 3rd base, Culver promptly struck out the side to preserve the victory.

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 the Scots traveled to Mariner High School in Everett and cranked up the offense, winning 12-2 in convincing fashion. The pitching continued to be tough as sophomore Aris Goss went the first 4 innings, allowing just one run, and then junior Cas Sato finished the job by going the final 3 innings, giving up a single run.

The offense was led by Alex Culver and Miles Iverson, each with 3 RBI’s, Aris who connected for two hits, and Ben Lockwood who was all over the bases with a double, two walks, and aggressive base-running. The game ended with a great defensive effort as Lockwood caught a fly ball in right field for the 2nd out and then fired home to nab the runner trying to score for the final out.

Shorecrest played its last non-league game remaining on Friday at home against Monroe before starting their league schedule against Mountlake Terrace on the 27th.
