The Shorewood Thunderbirds jumped out to an early lead and never looked backed in a 14-2 mercy-rule shortened victory over the Lynnwood Royals on Monday in a Wesco League game played at Lynnwood High School.
The T-Birds scored three runs in each of the first two innings of the game, the big blow being a second-inning two-run triple by Mia Battle; the Shorewood sophomore ended the contest with three RBI.
Lynnwood’s McKayla Kelley smacked a double and teammate Jadyen Angell went 2-for-2 at the plate, but it wouldn’t be enough as the Royals fell for the seventh time in their last eight outings.
