It took the Gig Harbor High School baseball team two bus trips over the Narrows Bridge, but after rain delayed their first meeting the Tides’ secured a 1-0 win over 4A Narrows host Yelm on Thursday.
Resuming in the bottom of the third inning from Wednesday, the game remained scoreless with Yelm only threating a runner on third to close the fifth.
That's when Gig Harbor closer Alex Harrison took the mound. He held the Tornados to one hit and four strikeouts for the win.
With one out in the seventh inning, Tides sophomore second baseman Cameron MacIntosh drove in the game-winning run with a single.
