The Marysville Getchell boys baseball team took on their crosstown rivals, the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks on April 3.

The Tomahawks got off to a hot start as they opened up the first inning with three runs and closed the inning with a shutout. They continued their dominance as they scored once again in the second inning and maintained their shutout over the Chargers. Marysville Getchell began to put together a few hits but weren't able to transfer those to runs on the scoreboard.

Through the next five innings Marysville-Pilchuck rode their momentum to 11 more runs and did not allow a single run to the Chargers. In the end, the Tomahawks walked away with the 15-0 shutout victory over Marysville Getchell.

"When you go against an experienced team you have to have a heightened awareness of your mistakes. Whether it's leaving a pitch up, not executing or missing a sign, you aren't going to get many of those opportunities against an older team and we saw that today. But you know what, they did a really good job of just going out there and playing ball," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Gabriel Rochon.

The Chargers had a rough outing, but they had a few big performances by their senior pitcher and duo of freshmen. Colten Bayley, pitcher, had control of the mound for five innings and put together seven strikeouts over that time. The duo of freshmen Trevour Loucks and Kody Galde had solid outings as well. Loucks went 3-3 at the plate with two singles, one double and a stolen base. Galde went 1-2 from the plate with a single.

"It's huge to have so many guys with experience coming back and knowing the speed of the game at this level. One of our biggest strengths is our depth by position and our pitching rotation that I am able to rely on from top to bottom. Looking forward to the rest of the year, M-P has had a history of coming up short when it comes to getting into the State playoffs. We typically end up in the top four of our league, but this year is a finishing year for this team and M-P baseball," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach James Day.

Joe McCoy, senior infielder, watches the defense as he runs to third base.

The Tomahawks' seniors took over the game with big performances from Eric Anderson, Colby Phelps, Mark Bielawski and Tyler Devries. Anderson had three hits at four at-bats, two RBIs, three runs, two stolen bases, two singles and a double. Phelps went 1-2 with two RBIs, one run and a single. Bielawski went perfect with two at-bats while driving in two runs, getting one run of his own, one single and a triple. Devries took the mound in the fourth inning and maintained the shutout through four innings while racking up four strikeouts.

Marysville-Pilchuck also had a sophomore come up big as Jordan Justice had one hit on four at-bats. He made up for his hits with his base running as he had two runs and a game-high four stolen bases.

If you want to come out and support the Chargers they will be hosting the Oak Harbor Wildcats on Tuesday, April 17, at 4 p.m. Or if you want to root on the Tomahawks, they will be playing against the Snohomish Panthers on the same day and time.
