Tumwater Vaults Past Aberdeen in Series Opener


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.
