Cardinals march on
Medical Lake’s Dylan Rushfeldt puts the tag on a Freeman runner at third to help halt a late ralley in the opening game of a doubleheader won by the Cards 7-1.
The Medical Lake Cardinals continue to carefully march towards a potential Northeast A League baseball regular season championship.
With a 3-0 week behind them following wins of 12-0 last Tuesday against Newport and then a doubleheader sweep of Freeman Friday - 7-1 and 8-4 - the Cards ran their winning streak to six, crafting a 3 1/2 game lead with five games remaining.
Medical Lake (12-1 NEA, 12-2 overall) will play at Lakeside (8-4, 8-5) Friday, travel to Chewelah (8-4, 9-4) Tuesday before wrapping up league play next Friday, May 3 with Senior Day against Riverside (5-6, 5-7).
