TACOMA — Ilwaco demolished Life Christian 26-0 and 14-3 in Saturday’s season-opening double-header in Tacoma.

In the early afternoon game, the Fishermen got at-bats for 15 players even though the contest went just three-and-a-half innings. Reese Tynkila led the way with seven RBIs in the contest on a pair of singles, a double and a walk. Dylan Simonson led off, stealing two bases and scoring four runs.

Trenton Cox dominated in his three-inning complete game, needing only 38 pitches to get through a five-strikeout, two-walk, no-hit performance. Three Eagles pitchers walked twelve batters and hit eight more. Trevor Hutson and Chris Wood each took two hit-by-pitches.

In the second game Tynkila went 3 for 4 with two doubles to cap a monster afternoon. Chris Wood was also 3 for 4. Landin Frank allowed an unearned run in four and a third innings before giving way to Trevor Hutson, who got the final two outs.
