Squalicum's baseball team rode a flurry of hits to a 15-1 win in five innings over Lynden Christian on Tuesday, April 1, at Squalicum High School. The Storm connected for 18 hits off of the Lyncs' pitchers.
"We really hit the ball well today," Squalicum coach John Inge said in a phone interview. "We hit the ball to all fields. For a team I thought would struggle to score runs, we've been hitting the ball."
Ben Johnson was 2 for 3 with two doubles, two runs and two RBI for the Storm. Kyle Little was 2 for 4 with two doubles, two runs and an RBI. Ben Wolters was 3 for 3 with a run and an RBI.
Jamie Heysteck scored Lynden Christian's lone run after reaching base on an error. He also had a stolen base against the Storm. Harper Moore took the win for Squalicum.
"Harper pitched a nice game. He really competes," Inge said. "He threw strikes and he pitched well in his last start against Sehome, but had a little more offensive support today."
Squalicum's next game is at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, at Ferndale. Lynden Christian will look to bounce back at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, at Friday Harbor.
