It was the end of the road in the 2018 season for the PCM baseball team on Saturday when they fell to East Marshall 11-4 in the class 2A district 12 title game.
Both teams were able to scratch across a run in the first on a pair of errors. In the third East Marshall tallied one more run but a pair of hits by Reed Worth and Preston Van Wyk helped the Mustangs take a 3-2 lead in the bottom half of the inning. PCM continued to have defensive troubles and gave up runs in every inning the rest of the way including three in the fifth and four in the sixth. Caleb Duinink had a RBI single in the fifth but it was not enough, as East Marshall advanced to the sub-state final. The Mustangs had a season high nine errors and only four runs were earned. Derek Brown went 4 2/3 innings giving up six hits and three earned runs. Brayton Van Dyke finished 3-for-4 with a run scored to lead the offense. Van Wyk added a pair of knocks going 2-for-4.
The Mustangs close the year at 12-14 and lose Noah Henkenius and Colton Warrick to graduation.
