The Blaine baseball team was unable to hold on in its 6-3 loss at home to Burlington-Edison in a Northwest Conference game Thursday, March 28.
"It was a good ball game and we played hard, we just aren't there yet," Blaine coach Sean Linville said in a phone interview. "They obviously have a good program and kept the heat on us till the end. We just couldn't hold them off."
Blaine (0-1 NWC, 4-3) was led by Zach Rector, who batted 2 for 3 with a run, Tony Goucher, who batted 2 for 3 with an RBI and Brett Allen, who batted 1 for 3 with two RBI.
"Tony did a great job on the mound and he held them as long as he could," Linville said. "He competed and sometimes you have to give the other team credit and Burlington got the hits when they needed them."
Blaine travels to Lynden Christian on Friday, March 29, for a Northwest Conference game.
