Tanner Olson didn't allow a run as he led the Lynden baseball team to a 4-0 win over Burlington-Edison on Monday, April 8, at home in a Northwest Conference game.
"The story was the pitching from Olson," Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview. "He pitched a complete game with five hits, eight strikeouts and only two base on balls. He kept the Burlington hitters off balance most of the game."
Olson improved to 4-0 for the Lions (3-1 NWC, 9-1). Luke Christianson led Lynden in batting after hitting 2 for 3 with a run. Josh Kraght went 2 for 2 with two runs and Matt Meyer went 1 for 3 with two RBI.
"The bases got loaded in the sixth from some errors defensively but Olson worked his way out of it," White said. "He put us in a position to win today."
Lynden travels to Anacortes for a Northwest Conference game Wednesday, April 10.
