MONROE – The Glenbrook Apaches picked up two, crucial wins Friday.
The Apaches needed at least one win in the doubleheader with River Oaks to have a shot at the MAIS playoffs, with a sweep making them a near lock for the postseason.
The Apaches won game one 9-4 before edging out the Mustangs in game two, 3-2.
Glenbrook took control of the first game with a five-run fourth inning.
Seth Gauthier paced the Apache offense, going 2-2 with 3 RBIs. Cameron Barnette finished 2-2 with two doubles and Cade Clemons doubled, singled and drove in two runs. Tyler Perryman added a double and 2 RBIs. Perryman was also the winning pitcher in game one, striking out four batters.
In game two, Glenbrook went into their bag of tricks. With the game tied 2-2 in the bottom of the seventh, Cameron Barnette laid down a squeeze bunt with the bases loaded to bring home the winning run and likely put Glenbrook into the playoffs.
Colt Wilson pitched the entire game for the Apaches, striking out five batters.
