Mules rally to tie Pirates, 19-19
April 1, 2021
In the past week, the Wahkiakum Mules baseball team won one game and tied the second.
On Thursday in Ilwaco, they beat the Fishermen 22-11.
"We had several guys step up and swing it," Coach Marc Niemeyer said. "Pitchers threw a little better. We just need to get better every game. I believe we are doing that in many areas."
Beau Carlson and Tristan Collupy both hit doubles and drove in three runs. Dominic Curl got on base with a double as well. Brody Carlson and Jake Leitz were responsible for three runs apiece. Damion Curl, Grant Wilson, and Levi Hauff had one RBI each.
Beau Carlson pitched nearly three innings and struck out four batters.
On Monday, the Mules traveled to Adna and tied the Pirates 19-19.
"I was proud of my senior leadership for keeping our heads in the game and for having a good time making memories," Coach Niemeyer said. "We need to get better defensively and limit walks."
Ashden Niemeyer was three for five at bat, driving in six runs. Tristan Collupy hit a double and had four RBIs. Chance Cothren went one for two and drove in two runs. Jake Leitz went one for four, and drove in one run. Beau Carlson and Tanner Collupy had one RBI apiece.
The Mules travel to South Bend on Wednesday to take on Raymond High School, and have their home opener today (Thursday), hosting Toledo.
