Tristan Sheward throws a quick strikeout to finish off the first inning against Lynnwood at Arlington High School on May 6.

The Arlington Eagles baseball team competed in their first postseason game of the year as they faced the Lynnwood Royals on May 6.

From the first pitch it seemed like the Eagles had control of the game as they faced a strong Lynnwood team that carries a couple of the top high school prospects in the state. Arlington had a strong start as they shut out the Royals through the first three innings, while scoring two runs during that span.

Lynnwood seemed to find hope in the fourth inning where they scored their first run and brought the score to 2-1. However, the Eagles quickly dispatched those hopes as they put up three runs in the fifth and another run in the sixth. The Royals would fight back in the sixth with a run, but it just wasn't enough as they fell to Arlington with a final score of 6-2.

Arlington's Nic Ferreira rounds second and heads to third against the Royals at Arlington High School on May 6.

"When we come into the game it's the same thing we talk about every time, the focus is on us. If we play like we should play, and can play, then I like our chances against anybody. We came out and played our game, we played aggressive, swung the bat, had great defense and our pitchers put it in there and forced them to put the ball in play," said Arlington Head Coach Scott Striegel.

Tristan Sheward controlled the mound for the first five innings of the game, racking up four strikeouts and only allowing one run. Jack Sheward came in to close over the last three innings, had a strikeout of his own and only allowed one run as well. Sheward also contributed heavily on the plate as he had two hits, two runs, two RBIs and a pair of stolen bases.

Branden Perdue came in the clutch at the plate, as he hit the late shot into left field that totaled two RBIs and put the game out of reach for the Royals. Gavin Rork also played a big role as he got on base twice, one hit and one walk, but managed to convert both of those into runs as well as grabbing two stolen bases.
