Snohomish bats heat up in the cold

SNOHOMISH – The Snohomish Panthers battled the cold by having their bats heat up.

Behind a solid performance by Derek Jones, the Panthers defeated the Shorewood Thunderbirds 10-3 Thursday in a non-league game at Snohomish High School.

The center fielder batted 3-for-5 with a long, two-run home run, two doubles and four RBI.

Jones also scored three runs in the Panthers (1-1 overall) first win of the early season.

“He had an absolutely great day at the plate,” Snohomish head coach Kim Hammons said.

Jones also closed it out for the Panthers coming into pitch in the seventh inning and striking out the side.

Snohomish’s Braden Allen finished 3-for-4 with a RBI.

“(Allen) did a nice job tonight,” Hammons said.

Snohomish scored in each of the first five innings and held the Thunderbirds at bay with solid pitching from senior Nick Hammons.

Hammons (1-0) gave up two hits and struck out five.

“We got ahead in the counts, threw a ton of strikes and had good command in very, very cold weather,” Kim Hammons said.

Shorewood (0-2) mounted a small rally in the fourth, scoring three runs.
