Mule baseball team falls to Ducks, Chinooks
April 28, 2022
Despite two losses to two of the Central 2B league's top teams in the last week, the Wahkiakum Mules baseball team remains committed to this season of growth.
On Friday, the Mules headed to the fields at Lower Columbia College to take on Toutle Lake and celebrate their lone senior this season, Elijah Cothren. The Mules lost 12-2.
"Mule pitching was excellent," Coach Garrett Radcliffe said, "with junior Tanner Collupy consistently hitting the strike zone and Dominic Curl doing the same. However, our defense was less than stellar and led to a lot of unearned runs against us."
The weather has made the schedule unpredictable this year, and a last minute change sent the Mules to Kalama for a make up game on Saturday. The Mules lost 14-1.
"Despite the losses, these were key development games against top teams," Radcliffe said. "Our younger guys were able to get some playing time."
The Mules' home game on Tuesday against Stevenson was postponed until today (Thursday), and Wahkiakum is scheduled to travel to Onalaska on Friday.
"The league standings are very tight," Coach Radcliffe said. "In order to make district we will need to pull together and win to push into the seventh seed."
