Sehome Up Early in Win Over Bellingham
April 2, 2019
The Sehome offense jumped on Bellingham early and never looked back in an 11-1 victory at home in a rare morning game on Tuesday. The Mariners scored 10 runs through the first three innings and tallied 11 base hits overall, including 5 triples in their final game before spring break.
Mel Kettering went 2-for-3 with a triple, 2 RBI's and 2 runs scored. Trevor Seaholm added an RBI and 3 runs scored, while Brooks Frere went 2-for-2 with a triple and 2 runs scored.
Makana Grondin and Tyler Reynolds combined to hold the Red Raiders to just 5 hits while striking out 3 batters over 5 innings.
"They did a really fine job for us, threw strikes and got ahead of batters, so I'm really pleased with the way the pitching was going today," said Sehome coach Monte Walton.
The lone Bellingham run came in the 4th inning when Emmanuel DePalma scored on a passed ball.
Sehome improves to 6-and-6 overall with a 3-and-2 mark in Northwest Conference play. The Red Raiders (1-10/0-5 NWC) suffered their 6th straight loss.
Walton liked the way his team bounced back after losing a 2-1 extra-inning affair at home to Ferndale Monday night.
"Our kids just, I don't know...didn't have it yesterday and kind of beat ourselves and they knew it," said Walton. "So they wanted to come back today and prove that they were better than what they showed yesterday and we just learned from and then we move on.
Both teams return to play April 9th at Joe Martin Field. Sehome battles Squalicum, while Bellingham hosts Mount Baker.
