Matt Meyer is returning to form as he led the Lynden baseball team to a 10-0, five inning victory over Nooksack Valley on Tuesday, April 16, at Lynden.
Meyer (2-0) struck out nine and walked two while giving up one hit. Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview that Meyer couldn't pitch last season because of elbow issues but has worked his way through them and is performing well.
"We were really encouraged with him today," White said. "His command was right there. ... He's a big presence on the mound."
Shane Treloar was 1 for 2 with a double and three RBI for the Lions, Jordan Wittenberg was 1 for 1 with two walks and two RBI, Josh Kraght was 1 for 3 with a triple and an RBI and Zach Vis was 1 for 2 with a double, two stolen bases and an RBI.
The Pioneers (2-3, 5-7) travel to Squalicum on Wednesday, April 17, while the Lions (6-1, 12-1) play at Lynden Christian on Friday, April 19, both Northwest Conference games.
