Borderites' bats impress in loss

SOUTH WHIDBEY 4, BLAINE 2

Blaine's baseball team couldn't get the season started with a win, as the Borderites fell 4-2 to South Whidbey on Saturday, March 15, at South Whidbey.

The Borderites did get their bats going early, recording seven hits - a good sign to start the year, coach Sean Linville said in a phone interview.

"We had guys on base early," Linville said. "But they made some outstanding plays in the field to take away some runs. There was some tough luck early in the game that put us in a tough position."

The success at the plate didn't transfer over to the defensive side of the ball, as the Borderites committed four errors and three of South Whidbey's four runs were unearned.

"We got to try and not do that," Linville said. "But we're a young team that's going to make mistakes. We just got to grow from that."

Blaine's leadoff hitter, Jared Vogee, the losing pitcher on the night, recorded two hits, including an RBI single in the sixth inning that scored Blaine's second run.

The Borderites hit the diamond again on Monday, March 17, to face Concrete on the road.
