Brady Bauthues only allowed one hit and led the Ferndale baseball team to a 5-0 win at Anacortes in a Northwest Conference game Wednesday, March 27.
"The real story was Brady on the mound," Ferndale coach Donny Hennigs said in a phone interview. "He only gave up an infield single in the sixth. He was attacking their hitters and going after them and making good pitches when he needed to."
Bauthues pitched all seven innings and improved to 2-1 on the year. Hennigs said he faced only two batters over the minimum.
The Golden Eagles (1-0 NWC, 5-3) were led in batting by Colin Wagner, who batted 3 for 3 with a run, and Bauthues, who batted 2 for 3 with an RBI.
Ferndale hosts Mount Baker at home in a Northwest Conference game Friday, March 29.
