BASEBALL: West Seattle High School’s come-from-behind win over Franklin

Kit Lui walk off hit vs Frankin in extra innings

That’s video from West Seattle High School‘s come-from-behind win over Franklin HS at Hiawatha on Monday, with Kit Lui at the plate – the hero of the game, Porter Hammer reports:

After trailing by as much as 6 to 1 in the 4th inning, the West Seattle varsity baseball team came from behind to win in extra innings, playing 9 innings before beating Franklin 7-6. The team is now 4-1 on the year.

Down 6 to 4 in the final frame of regulation, West Seattle senior 3rd baseman Kit Lui hit a 2 RBI double to tie the game at 6 each, forcing extra innings.

Then, in the bottom of the 9th inning, Kit Lui again came up big, hitting a two out double to drive in West Seattle senior 1st baseman Anthony Coats from second base, completing the come from behind in walk-off fashion.

Kit ended the day with 4 RBIs, going 3-for-3 at the plate with 2 doubles. Kai Osaka, Nathan Villegas, and Anthony Coats all also contributed a double in West Seattle’s effort. Starting pitcher was Matt Morin, who went 4 innings, giving up 6 runs. Relieving Morin was Eli Markham, who pitched 5 strong innings, giving up only 2 hits and no runs.

The next game is tomorrow at 4 pm vs O’Dea at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue.

    Please note that Matt Morin only had 2 earned runs as pitcher in this game.  Errors by teammates unfortunately brought in runs, and the whole team took it on that chin for those.  But thankfully, they were able to pull it out! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
