After winning its first three games, and then losing its next three, the Tumwater baseball team is on another three game win streak after beating Aberdeen, 7-1, in its series opener with the Bobcats Thursday evening at home.
The Thunderbirds had a great day on the mound, with Ryan Orr and Blake Smith combining to allow no earned runs and just six hits, with one unearned run scored on a fielding error. The pair also combined for 11 punchouts.
On the offensive end, Landon Roy was the engine, driving in four runs, doubling twice, and going 2 for 3 at the plate in a standout day. Derek Thompson was also 2 for 2 with three runs and a triple, and Eddie Marson went 1 for 3 with an RBI to round out the standouts.
The T-Birds (6-3, 3-2) will look for their first four-game winning streak of the season as they look to win the series with the Bobcats outright Friday on the road at 4:30 p.m.
