Hawk pitcher Jason Shevenko gave up just four hits, one earned run and struck out nine Lynnwood hitters in six innings.
Four errors by Mountlake Terrace gave the Royals plenty of opportunities to push runs across the plate in what otherwise was a gripping pitchers’ duel.
The game was in doubt until the final inning when Lynnwood scored three runs to break a 1-1 tie and earn the victory.
The Royals took the series against Terrace 2-1 and now sit in second place in the Wesco 3A South behind the undefeated Shorewood T-Birds. Both Lynnwood and Terrace begin new three-game sets on Tuesday, Mar. 31 – the Royals against Meadowdale and the Hawks against Glacier Peak.
