The Nooksack Valley baseball team beat visiting Blaine 3-1 on Monday, April 1, in a Northwest Conference league game.
The Pioneers (5-5, 2-1 NWC), who scored all three of their runs in the sixth inning, rode the pitching of senior Brandon Gwinner, who remains a perfect 3-0 despite not having his best performance.
"He didn't have his best stuff today," Nooksack coach Scott Gelwicks said in a phone interview. "He managed through it, and we battled through it, and we made some plays when we needed to."
Tanner Myhre went 2 for 3 with a triple, and Joey Scheffer added two hits and an RBI.
Blaine (4-5, 0-3) hosts La Conner on Thursday, April 4, while Nooksack Valley doesn't play again until April 10 at Mount Baker.
