The Marysville Getchell baseball team hosted the Everett Seagulls for the final game of their three-game series on April 20.
The Seagulls came out in the first two innings and made a huge statement from both sides of the plate. Over the first and second inning Everett scored eight runs while keeping Marysville Getchell off of the scoreboard. Everett continued to keep rolling as they put up three more runs in the top of the third.
The Chargers made their first dent in the lead with one run in the bottom of the third inning, as they went into the fourth down 11-1. Over the next two innings Marysville Getchell managed to put up another run, while Everett scored four more runs of their own. After creating a huge lead, the game was cut short as the Seagulls walked away with the 15-2 victory in the bottom of the fifth.
“Regardless of the outcome I wanted to make sure that they stayed in the moment and focused on every part of the game as it came. We have such a young core and the goal is for them to take it game by game and understand the opportunity they have in front of them to finish this season strong,” said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Gabriel Rochon.
Marysville Getchell had contributions from the young players on their roster including Trevor Loucks, Josiah Koellmer and Cannon Van-Dalen. Loucks, sophomore center fielder, had a great day at the plate as he went 1-1 with a double, two walks and one run. Koellmer, sophomore shortstop, didn’t record a hit but earned one walk and one run. Van-Dalen, freshman third baseman, filled the stat sheet as he went 1-1 with a single, two walks, an RBI and one stolen base.
The Chargers also had their seniors Ryan King and Caleb Koellmer make plays for them throughout the game. King, senior pitcher, earned two strikeouts over two innings while also going 1-2 from the plate with a single and a walk. Koellmer, senior right fielder, finished going 1-2 with a single and one stolen base.
