A pair of Mountlake Terrace pitchers combined to throw a one-hit shutout Tuesday as the Hawks defeated the Meadowdale Mavericks 7-0 in a 2A/3A Wesco League South Conference match-up played at Mountlake Terrace High School.
Hawks’ starter Jared Maxfield pitched six innings, gave up just one hit, struck out 10 and walked just one to earn the victory; Mathew Johnson took over in the seventh inning and struck out all three Mavericks batters he faced to close out the game.
Markus Ward picked up the only Mavericks’ hit – a single – in the contest.
Nine different Hawks got hits off Meadowdale starter Aaron Chester and reliever Nate Monillas. Jonathan Kumai had a two-RBI single as a part of Terrace’s six-run fifth inning.
The two teams will meet again on Wednesday, April 19 — this time at Meadowdale High School — to close out their two-game series; first pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.
