Sam Aown was a factor in multiple facets.
And Darius Zimmerman came through late.
Aown earned the win on the mound and at the plate scored three runs and drove in three more. Zimmerman drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh as the Foss High School baseball team left with a walk-off 11-10 victory over visiting Lincoln in 3A Narrows action on Thursday.
"It was an exciting game," Falcons coach Roy Young said. "We battled back and forth. We have good momentum going into next week."
Never miss a local story.
Foss junior third baseman Darius Zimmerman plated the game-winning run with one out and the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh. Zimmerman also had three hits, including a triple earlier in the game.
Lincoln scored in all but the second and seventh innings, but never led by the end of an inning. Foss (6-7; 4-4 3A Narrows) responded with runs of its own in the bottom half of the frame each time, including the deciding run in the bottom of the seventh.
Devin Snow was 3 for 5 with two doubles and scored three runs for Lincoln (1-9; 0-7 3A Narrows).
Curtis 4, Emerald Ridge 3: Alec Gronlund hit the game-winning single to give the Vikings a 4A SPSL South home win.
Emerald Ridge sophomore Logan Skoda had two hits along with teammate Kyle Stueckle. The Vikings outhit the Jaguars 10-7 to hand Emerald Ridge (6-5; 4-2 4A SPSL South) its second league loss of the season.
Curtis (8-5; 5-3 4A SPSL South) is in third place in the league standings behind Puyallup (7-1) and Rogers (6-2).
Auburn Mountainview 2, Todd Beamer 0: Nathan Cerrillo had a single and a double and scored half of the Lions runs in a nonleague road win.
Jared Gray and Justin Marsden combined to allow one hit in seven innings for Auburn Mountainview (10-1; 7-0 3A SPSL). Gray allowed the hit. He struck out four in four innings and Marsden pitched the final three and struck out five.
Taylor Davis pitched four innings and allowed four hits, two runs (one earned) and struck out three for Todd Beamer (10-5; 7-2 4A SPSL Northwest). Andy McBride shut the Lions down with three innings of relief with only three hits allowed and no runs.
Kepa Sharpe had Beamer’s lone hit. Josh Swanson was 1 for 3 with a double and an RBI for Auburn Mountainview.
Graham-Kapowsin 5, Bethel 2: Junior third baseman Alex Rivera hit a home run in the fifth inning to restore the lead and lift the Eagles to a 4A SPSL South home win.
Nathan Anderson allowed two runs, none earned, in seven innings and struck out six for Graham-Kapowsin (6-6; 3-4 4A SPSL South).
