Liam Karlson had his way on the mound against Black Hills on Monday, as the senior tossed six shutout innings to lead Tumwater to a 6-1 win.

Karlson allowed just two hits and struck out nine, and the T-Birds (15-4, 11-0 2A EvCo) gave him plenty of run support with a five-run third.

Eddie Marson tallied three hits in four at-bats and drove in a run, while Derek Thompson went 2 for 4 and scored a run. Charlie Crawford drove in a pair on a two-run single in the third.

Elijah Simpson pitched well in relief for the Wolves (4-14, 2-11 2A EvCo), allowing just two hits and an unearned run in three and a third.

The T-Birds and Wolves will play again on Tuesday at Black Hills. It'll be the Wolves final game of the regular season, but Tumwater will host North Thurston in a non-league game on Friday.
