Spring has finally sprung

The Federal Way Eagles got their first South Puget Sound League South baseball victory Wednesday over the Rogers Rams, 5-2.

After a shaky first inning, Federal Way pitcher Brett Davis settled down to earn the complete-game win. The senior gave up both runs in the top of the first and struck out eight Rams.

The Eagles (1-2) answered back with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first and scored their other three in the third. Thomas Watts had three RBIs, Kyle Hanselman was 2-for-3 with two RBIs and Greg Washington scored two runs for Federal Way.

Kentlake 6, Federal Way 5

The Eagles weren’t sharp in their first game in more than a week during a March 24 home loss to the Kentlake Falcons.

“We have a ways to go defensively,” said coach Eric Fiedler. “It was not a well-played defensive game.”

Federal Way made a total of five errors during the non-league game in the infield and outfield.

About the only highlight for the Eagles came in the bottom of the fifth inning when senior centerfielder Andre Piper-Jordan hit a three-run home run to right-centerfield. Davis finished the game 2 for 2 with an RBI.

Kentlake took the early lead with a run in the top of the first. Federal Way tied the game with a run of their own in the bottom of the inning, but the Falcons tallied the next five runs with one in the fourth and four in the fifth. The Eagles made it close with a run in the sixth.
