Oscar White hit a home run to lead the Bellingham baseball team to a 12-3 win over Lynden in a Northwest Conference game Friday, March 29, in Lynden.
"They hit the ball really well today and took advantage of some walks," Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview. "They constantly put pressure on us. They earned the victory and did a great job."
White batted 3 for 4 and had four RBI for Bellingham. Austin Shenton batted 2 for 4 and Alex Check batted 2 for 3 with two RBI for the Red Raiders (2-0 NWC, 6-2).
Matt Meyer batted 2 for 3 with a home run and an RBI for the Lions (1-1 NWC, 6-1). Zach Vis batted 1 for 3 with a home run and an RBI and Ryan Mouat batted 2 for 3 with a double for Lynden.
"Matt Richard did a great job on the mound for them and relied on his defense to make plays," White said. "He gave up seven hits but he scattered them out so they didn't matter."
Bellingham travels to Ferndale on Saturday, March 30, in a non-league game, while Lynden plays Squalicum at Joe Martin Field on Monday, April 1, in a Northwest Conference league match up.
