Brice Longanecker struck out 15 batters to lead the Sehome baseball team to a 5-0 win over Squalicum in a Northwest Conference game Monday, April 8, at home.
"The first inning was really the climactic inning for us," Sehome coach Gary Hatch said in a phone interview. "We had four base hits in a row and that really got things started for us."
Hatch said Sehome's first batter Josh Zavisubin led the game off with a hit that hit Squalicum pitcher Brad Alvord in the chest.
"Alvord really had one of the guttiest and grittiest performances I've seen," Hatch said. "He shut us down until the fourth when we got one more run on him."
Squalicum (0-3 NWC, 1-10) was led in batting by Coleman Schwab, who batted 1 for 2, and Kyle Little and Josh Holcomb, who each batted 1 for 3.
Sehome (3-1 NWC, 9-3) was led by Zavisubin, who batted 3 for 4 with an RBI and Jacob Manson, who batted 2 for 3 with two RBI and a double.
Squalicum travels to Meridian for a Northwest Conference game Wednesday, April 10, while Sehome hosts Ferndale.
