The Sehome baseball team got plenty of base runners but couldn't get the clutch hits to bring them home in a 4-2 non-conference loss at Anacortes on Monday, April 1, in a game that lasted only 1 hour, 20 minutes.
The Mariners (7-3) left the bases loaded in the top of the fifth and nine runners on in all.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, picked up three runs in the fifth on Dan Bakeman's two-out, two-run double and an other two-out double from Les Leow.
"We hit the ball hard today," Sehome coach Gary Hatch said in a phone interview. "The gave us three walks, two errors, and we had eight base hits. When you get that much, you should get more than two runs, but we didn't clutch up. We didn't deliver, and they did in the fifth."
Tyler Knutsen and Brice Longanecker each had a pair of hits and a double for the Mariners, who next host Burlington-Edison in a 1 p.m. game on Wednesday, April 3, at Joe Martin Field.
