Men's Baseball: Huskies stay in hunt for championship

The Washington Huskies kept pace for the top spot in the Mission Valley Athletic League as they beat Kennedy 7-2 on May 3. Bouncing back after a disappointing game last week in which they lost to the American Eagles 6-4, the Huskies needed a win to remain even with the Newark Memorial Cougars record of 7-2.
That is just what they did as they scored seven runs on nine hits. Brandon Sewell put together a great day at the mound as he pitched all seven innings with a great fastball that hit the mark all day long and a slider that left Titans batters guessing.
The Husky offense started early in the second inning when balls began to shred the Titan infield defense and find holes in the deep outfield. This has become a trademark of Husky baseball this year. Struggling from behind throughout the game, the Titans finally found a way to score in the seventh inning, but it was too little and too late.
