Lynden's baseball team staged a seventh-inning rally, but couldn't complete the comeback and fell 9-7 to Anacortes on Monday, March 31, at Anacortes.
Jordan Wittenberg got the rally going with a triple that knocked in a run, but after the Lions racked up four runs a baserunning error killed their momentum.
"We had six hits in the seventh inning and the tying run was left at second," Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview.
Wittenberg finished 3 for 4 with three stolen bases to complement his triple and RBI. Kody Ames took the loss for the Lions, going five innings with two strikeouts, three walks, eight hits and just three earned runs.
"Kody pitched well enough to get the win, but we have to eliminate the errors," White said. "Jordan has been hitting the ball well. He puts pressure on the other team."
Lynden will make up a rained-out game against Burlington-Edison at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, at Lynden.
