LYNDEN 13, LYNDEN CHRISTIAN 1

Lynden's bats started clicking in the back half of the game, as the Lions scored all 13 of their runs in the last four innings in a 13-1 defeat of Lynden Christian on Monday, March 24, at Lynden Christian High School.

Kody Ames was the star of the day for Lynden. It only took him 64 pitches to get all 21 outs in the seven-inning game. He only faced 23 hitters and struck out eight of them.

"He's a guy that can swallow up quite a few innings," Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview. "He threw really well today. He only got behind two or three hitters, so he was ahead of hitters. He kept ball down and relied on the defense."

Tristan Blaske had a home run and a double in the game for Lynden.

"It was a big win for the guys," White said. "We have a lot of guys that are still raw and have been waiting their turn to get in the lineup. So it was a good win for us. The pitching and defense did a great job."

Lynden faces Sehome on Wednesday, March 26, at home. LC plays Nooksack Valley on Wednesday on the road.
