The Sehome softball team fell behind early and ended up losing to Anacortes 10-4 during a Northwest Conference game Friday, March 29, at Frank Geri Fields in Bellingham.
A first-inning error helped the Seahawks push across two runs, and Anacortes strung five hits together, highlighted by a Liz Crook's two-run homer, in the third inning to take a 6-1 lead. Crooks also pitched and earned the win. Sehome pitcher Meagan McIntyre suffered the loss.
"Crooks was throwing the ball pretty good," Sehome coach Jim Emerson said in a phone interview. "Mallory Kruzich came in in relief and really pitched well for us. She kept us alive, but we couldn't come back."
Gabby Gorosave and Shai Wakelin each hit a double, and the Mariners scored one run in the fifth and two in the sixth, but Sehome couldn't capitalize on a bases-loaded situation during the late innings.
Sehome (3-5, 1-2 NWC) travels to Squalicum next at 4 p.m. April 9, in a Northwest Conference league match-up.
