SNOHOMISH — Snohomish junior pitcher Jake Mulholland spent a lot of time in the offseason working on his game.
It appears all the hard work has paid off.
Mulholland gave up just three hits in six innings while earning the win on the mound in the Panthers’ 5-1 win over Glacier Peak in a non-league game Thursday.
“He’s come in here and he’s ready to go and he’s just lights out right now,” Snohomish head coach Kim Hammons said.
Mulholland located his pitches well and was overpowering. In his six innings, he struck out 14 Glacier Peak batters.
“I just felt comfortable and I felt ready,” Mulholland said. “All of the work in the offseason has just come down to this. I feel comfortable and I’m prepared. I know I have my offense that is going to score me runs, so I don’t have to worry about that and I’ve got a great defense behind me and I know we’re going to do everything right.”
