Service pitcher Braden Mitchell survived a rocky start and Mike Shuler was tough in relief Monday, helping the Cougars to a 9-5 CIC baseball win at Chad Bax Field.
Bartlett scored four runs on four hits in the first inning and tacked on a run in the second, but Mitchell shut down the Golden Bears after that before yielding to Shuler, who allowed just two hits in the final three innings.
Matt Ilalio drove in two runs for Service in the third inning and finished with three hits.
Brian Randazzo led Bartlett at the plate with two hits and two RBIs. South 14, Chugiak 3
