The Meadowdale Maverick and Mountlake Terrace Hawks split their two-game series this week as the Mavs came out on top 8-5 on Wednesday at Meadowdale High School.
Meadowdale used a big five-run fifth inning to bust open a close game and then hold on for the victory.
Cole Duncan and Dalton Long — both sophomores — and Brady Johnson all had doubles in the game for the Mavs, while teammate Nolan Eskey contributed three singles to the Meadowdale hit parade.
Down 7-2 after five innings, Terrace tried to claw back into the game, scoring three runs in the sixth inning before the Mavs’ Caleb Berry took the mound in relief. Berry was able to shut down the Hawks in the final one-and-a-third innings to earn the save.
Terrace had defeated the Mavs 8-3 on Tuesday to open the Wesco League South Conference two-game series before Meadowdale’s Wednesday victory.
