Marysville Getchell's Zachary Townsend slides in safe for the triple as Marysville-Pilchuck's Matteo Pellegrini is late for the tag at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on April 4.

The Marysville-Pilchuck baseball team welcomed the Marysville Getchell Chargers for the first game of the crosstown rivalry on April 4.

The Chargers got off to a quick start as they scored a run in the top of the first. However, the Tomahawks came out as a dominate force from the plate as they ran through their lineup, scoring 11 runs in the bottom of the first.

Throughout the rest of the game the Chargers battled back as they scored six runs over the fourth and fifth innings. Unfortunately, the original scoring load by the Tomahawks was too much as Marysville-Pilchuck ended the game early, in the sixth inning, with a score of 18-8.

"It takes the whole team to get to playoffs and beyond. We haven't been to State since we've been 3A, so breaking into State and getting to play that game is the biggest goal. We've always been one or two games away and team focus is what we need to work on to make sure we can make it there," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach James Day.

Tyler Devries pitched an incredible game for the Tomahawks as he only allowed two runs and racked up seven strikeouts over the course of four innings. At the plate, Marysville-Pilchuck had a few big contributors such as Kyler Alvis and Mark Bieawski. Alvis went three for four at the plate while putting up 4 RBIs and a run for himself. Biewaski only had two at-bats as he was subbed out early, but he still managed to hit for two doubles, three RBIs and a pair of runs.

Ethan Watts closes out the inning with a quick strikeout at Marysville-Pilchuck High School on April 4.

"Mentally you have to show up every day. Baseball is a very tough sport to just mentally not be in it. It's not like football where you can throw your weight around and get by. One of the big things that we have been focusing on is to be mentally ready in order to execute physically," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Gabe Rochon.

Zachary Townsend was a huge spark for the Chargers on both sides of the ball. Townsend finished with two hits, one for a triple, one RBI, one run and two stolen bases. He also made some incredible stops from the outfield as well.

If you want to catch the next Tomahawk game they will be facing the Arlington Eagles on Wednesday, April 12, at 4 p.m. Or if you want to see the Chargers next home game they will be playing the Shorecrest Scots on Friday, April 14, at 4 p.m.
