Stanwood baseball wins in nine, hands MP first league loss

MARYSVILLE — Henry Hedeen knocked in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth inning and Wyatt Jeans finished off a masterful complete-game performance as Stanwood beat Marysville Pilchuck 2-1 to hand the Tomahawks their first league loss.

Jeans struck out 11 and surrendered just three hits over nine innings to improve to 3-0 on the season and keep the Spartans’ hopes alive for at least a share of the Wesco 3A North title.

In the ninth, Stanwood’s Isaac Olson and Drew McDonald hit back-to-back one-out singles to set up Hedeen’s sac fly to center field. Hedeen also had the Spartans’ other RBI, doubling in McDonald in the third for the game’s first run.

Marysville Pilchuck starter Alex Gray threw 123 pitches and limited Stanwood to only one run over eight innings.

Jake Luton scored the Tommies’ lone run, doubling in the bottom of the sixth inning and scoring on Andrew Alvis’ groundout to shortstop.

The two teams finish up their three-game series on Friday. Marysville Pilchuck won the first game of the series on Tuesday.
