Chad Richter picked up his second win of the season, as he held Renton to just two hits to help the Meridian baseball team to a 19-0 non-conference win on Saturday, March 23, at Bellingham High School.
"Our pitching was solid, and our pitchers were able to handle them pretty good," Meridian coach Steve Slesk said in a phone interview. "The key to the game was that we walked two guys, and they walked nine, so that gave us a lot of chances to score."
Josh Hosick and Jeremy Brockmann combined for four of the Trojans' 11 hits.
Meridian (5-0) next travels to Lynden on Wednesday, March 27, for a Northwest Conference game.
