  • May 12, 2014 at 1:27PM

The Liberty runner was getting a bit too much of a lead-off for comfort. So, "We decided to go for it," said Mount Si shortstop Carson Breshears, who was on the receiving end of a pick play, tagging a runner in the dirt and shutting down Liberty for the night. Defense like that, and fundamental 'small ball' play got Mount Si that much closer to a fourth and final KingCo title. The Wildcat baseball team beat Liberty, 3-0, on Saturday, May 10.

One of the only times you get that mentality is at meets.”
