SEHOME 7, LYNDEN 6

Sehome's baseball team scored five runs in the first and held off a late rally by Lynden for a 7-6 win on Wednesday, March 26, at Lynden High School.

The five runs in the first came off three hits and four Lynden errors.

"That was huge," Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview. "The combination of hits and errors proved costly. After that we did really well."

The Lions responded with two runs in the bottom half of the first and then four combined between the fourth and fifth innings, but were unable to score the tying run.

"We put a little pressure later on in the game," White said. "Both teams hit really well, but both have to work on defense."

Leif Anderson picked up the win on the mound, striking out four in 4 2/3 innings. Davis Hampton finished off the back half of the game, striking out two.

On the other side, Christian Mouat came in on relief of Cameron Wainwright. Mouat struck out three in five innings, while allowing one run.

"We are encouraged by his performance on the mound," White said. "He did a good job of holding them at bay."

Sehome faces Bellingham on Friday, March 28, on the road. Lynden plays Burlington-Edison on Friday at home.
