Big bats, pitching power Medical Lake softball to quick start
A new-found offensive side of the game has emerged early for the Medical Lake High School softball team, and new head coach Tim Blakely.
The Cardinals’ bats were certainly lively in a sweep last week of three games, two of which to start the Northeast A League season.
Last Thursday in their lone nonleague game of the season versus Davenport, Medical Lake got a nine-run fourth to break open a close contest and cruise past the Gorillas, 11-1. Then Saturday afternoon they kept the offense going in a doubleheader sweep of NEA foe Newport, winning 12-2 and 17-2 at Medical Lake.
