The West Seattle High School varsity-baseball team opened this year’s playoff run with a 3-1 win over Lakeside today. Greg Slader shares the photos and summary:
Catcher Graham French (photo below) led the offense with RBI doubles in the first and third inning to give the Wildcats the lead.
His clutch hits scoring two runs would be plenty for pitcher Ben Wexler (photo above), who threw a complete game and only gave up one run, in the top of the seventh, when West Seattle already had a 3-0 lead.
Next game is Tuesday 4 pm vs the winner of Bainbridge vs Ingraham. All Metro playoff games are at Steve Cox Field in White Center.
That’s where Chief Sealth IHS is playing Seattle Prep right now; we’ll have a report on that game later.
UPDATE: Bainbridge will be the opponent on Tuesday.
