The Lakeside Recovery Senior American Legion team’s pitching staff came up with another gem Wednesday with nine scoreless innings against perennial power Chaffey at the Husky Ballpark. Unfortunately, Lakeside failed to score and the game ended in a 0-0 tie when the contest was halted after the bottom of the ninth because of darkness.
Lakeside Recovery starter Connor Lawhead, a Skyline High graduate, pitched the first eight innings and allowed just one hit. Lawhead, who played at Walla Walla Community College this spring, struck out five and walked just one batter in his sharpest outing of the season.
Brandon Mahvolich, of Issaquah, pitched the final inning.
Nate Anderson, of Newport, had two hits for Lakeside Recovery.
Last weekend Lakeside pitchers tossed a no-hitter against Garfield.
Lakeside Recovery entertains the Skagit Sox on Friday in a doubleheader at Bannerwood Park. The first game starts at 5 p.m.
