Wolves take two Saturday
Rain and wind gusts arent ideal conditions for baseball.
Dont tell Coupeville, however, as the Wolves played near-perfect baseball Saturday, defeating non-league Adna 11-2 and Tenino 2-0, in a mini-tournament at CHS.
Two games and we didnt give up an error thats pretty impressive, Coupeville head coach Willie Smith said.
The Wolves started out strong against Adna in the morning game.
Taking a 2-0 lead into the fifth inning, Coupeville exploded for nine runs over the final two innings to secure the victory.
Starting pitcher Mike Bagby shut Adnas bats down from the get-go, striking out 12 and allowing only three hits over seven innings.
He was able to locate really well, Smith said. Its probably the best outing hes ever had for me as a pitcher.
Bagby also came up big at the plate, going 3-for-4 with three RBI. Senior Kirby Mitchell was 2-for-3 with a double.
The Wolves continued to roll in their afternoon game against Tenino, led by strong pitching and flawless defense.
CHS scored its only two runs on a double squeeze bunt in the third inning by Mitchell. The bunt scored Trevor Mueller from third base and Bagby from second.
Freshman pitcher Alex Evans took over from there.
In his first varsity start Evans struck out seven batters and allowed only three hits in a shutout.
Northwest A opponent Concrete also took part in the tournament, defeating Adna 6-5 and losing to Tenino 8-2.
Coupeville now sits at 2-0-1 overall. They will face 2A Archbishop Murphy on the road, Friday, April 1.
