The Merit Knights entered Friday’s games knowing they were important to ensure this coming Tuesday would retain it’s playoff appeal. The Knights took care of business by winning the first game 15 – 4. The second game of the doubleheader was loaded with more pressure. The top of the fifth saw the score get as close as 10 – 5. The bases were loaded with two outs, and the next Westridge batter had worked his way to a full count on sophomore pitcher Stetler Tanner. Tanner was able to get the next pitch through for the third strike. The Knights were able to get the win in the bottom of the fifth working their way to a 15 – 5 win. The wins make Tuesday’s season finale a playoff game. Win and move on to the next stage of the season. The Knights take on the Telos Titans Tuesday night at 4pm at Maple Mountain High School. Come out and support your Knights.
