The Mariners A squad twice felled the visiting Libby Loggers Sunday, picking up a 17-5 win in the first round and ending the nightcap 10-2.

The Mariners totaled 27 hits in the doubleheader, with Warren Wood doubling and driving in five runs in the opener. TJ Olson added two hits, three runs and three RBIs. Nyqolas Gillingham and Micah McClure chipped in three RBIs apiece, and McClure hit a home run. 

In the second frame, Walter Wood went 3 for 4 with three runs and an RBI for the Mariners in the nightcap. Gillingham added three hits and a pair of RBIs, and Derek Peel had two singles and two RBIs.

On Wednesday, the AA Missoula Mavs’ pitching lineup proved too much for the Mariners, holding the Mission Valley team to just six hits and a lone run.

Five Mavs took the mound in the 5-1 victory, fanning a total of seven Mariner batters.

For the Mariners, Derek Peel doubled and Walter Wood scored on a seventh-inning error, but it was too late to chop Missoula’s 4-0 lead.

The Mother’s Day tribute was a bit more successful for the Mariners A, as they sent the visiting Kalispell Lakers A squad home with a 16-4 loss.
