Sehome Thumps Bellingham at Joe Martin Field
March 19, 2019
The Sehome baseball squad snapped their 4-game losing streak in dramatic fashion Tuesday. The Mariners exploded for 11 runs in the top-half of the 1st inning on the way to a 16-to-2 drubbing of Bellingham in 5 innings at Joe Martin Field.
Sehome touched up Bellingham starter Lucas Bogaards, sending 16 batters to the plate in the first inning. Sehome put up 16 runs on 11 hits with 1 error. Bellingham got their 2 runs off 5 hits and committed 3 errors.
"All our hard work has paid off, it's good to come out and swing the bats like we're capable of playing," said Sehome coach Monte Walton. "We came out aggressive and that was the goal today to come out aggressive against a competitive Red Raider team."
The offense was well spread out for Sehome. Makana Grondin was 2-for-3 at the plate with 2 runs , a walk and 3 RBI's. Patrick Miksovsky 2-for-2 , a double, a stolen base, a walk and 3 runs scored. Tim Malo was 2-for 3 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI's. Lukas Delisle went 1-for-2 with a double, 2 walks an RBI, and 3 runs scored.
We knew they're a city rival, so we're coming out jacked and amped and we've been kind of practicing coming up up with an aggressive approach to start the game and that kind of transitioned through the entire lineup, said shortstop and leadoff hitter Trevor Seaholm, who went 1-for 3 with 3 walks, an RBI and 1 run scored.
The senior co-captain was happy his team was able bounce back and break their 4-game losing streak.
"It's huge because we know we're going to keep the momentum rolling as we go into tomorrow night and then into our first league game on Friday," said Seaholm.
Tyler Reynolds pitched the final 3 innings for the Mariners to pick up the victory. The senior registered 4 strikeouts while giving up just one run on 3 hits.
Bellingham senior Kyle Payne was the shinning star for the Red Raiders. The shortstop went 2-for-3 with a home run, 1 RBI, a run scored and 2 stolen bases.
Sehome (2-4) is back in action Wednesday when they play host to Meridian at 6:00pm. Bellingham (0-4) also plays Wednesday as they hit the road for a 4:00pm game at Lakewood.
