Tumwater Pours On Runs to Beat Shelton


Shelton showed some fight for an inning, but the Tumwater baseball team got into gear as the afternoon went on Tuesday to pull away for a 10-3 win in 2A EvCo play.

After falling behind 3-2 after a frame, the Thunderbirds put up four crooked numbers, including three in the final four innings.

Eddie Marson and Kyler Collier both had two-hit days for Tumwater, the latter logging a double and three RBIs to boot. Brayden Oram went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk, two runs scored, and two more driven in, and Graysen Reveal had two RBIs. Alex Overbay finished without a hit, but drew three walks and came around to score every time.

Trenton Gaither went 3 ⅓ innings, allowing three unearned runs on two hits and four walks. Derek Thompson got the T-Birds the rest of the way, striking out five and giving up just a hit and a walk.

Tumwater will be back in action next Tuesday, opening up its series against Centralia.
