Despite the dismal weather, high school baseball goes on. This week, in the rain, the Wahkiakum Mules baseball team split games, winning one at home and losing another in Adna.

On Wednesday, the Mules beat the Rainier Mountaineers 10-1.

"James (Anderson) threw really well in tough conditions," Coach Marc Niemeyer said. "We capitalized offensively in the sixth with some errors mixed in with big hits."

Jacob Cavender was 1-3 at bat and had two RBIs. Anderson and Ashden Niemeyer both went 1-3 at bat and drove in one run apiece.

On Thursday, the Mules traveled to Adna and lost 10-0 despite a great effort.

"Hank (Ferguson) and Casey (Wilson) had a hit and Zach (Brown) pitched well," Coach Niemeyer said. "We faced a tough pitcher with great command."

The Mules return to play after spring break with a game in Winlock on April 8.
