Tanner Olson tossed a three-hitter for Lynden, helping the Lions to an 11-0 win over Mount Baker on Monday, April 15, in a Northwest Conference league game at Mount Baker.
"(Olson) gave us a chance to win and he did a good job," Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview.
Olson finished with nine strikeouts and just three walks while also helping his cause at the plate, going 3 for 4 with a double and two runs. Luke Christianson also had a big day with three doubles, three runs, a stolen base and an RBI.
"A couple of those would have been home runs," White said of a few of Christianson's doubles. "He had some great at-bats."
Mount Baker (6-6, NWC 2-3) next plays on Wednesday, April 17, at Burlington-Edison, while Lynden (11-1, NWC 5-1) doesn't play until Friday, April 19, against Sehome. Both are NWC league games.
