The McNary High School varsity baseball team had an up-and-down week after snapping a four-game losing skid.

The Celts began last week with a 2-1 win over North Salem High School.

With the game knotted 1-1, senior Zac Fegles bunted for a single in the bottom of the seventh and then stole second before scoring on a two-out error the next play.

Ben Johnson pitched a complete game, retiring six batters. Kaleb Simpson notched an RBI, bringing in Ty Wyatt in the fourth inning.

On Wednesday, April 17, McNary battled back from a two-run homer by South Salem High School’s Jake DuFault to tie the game at 2-2, but a five-run fifth inning for the Saxons put the game out of reach.
