Meridian falls in extras to Brewster

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDApril 2, 2014 

BREWSTER 5, MERIDIAN 4 (8)

The Meridian baseball team scored a run in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings against Brewster, but eventual fell to the Bears 5-4 in eight on Wednesday, April 2, at Meridian High School in a non-conference matchup.

"When they had chances, they were getting some clutch hits," Meridian coach Steve Slesk said in a phone interview. "We didn't clutch up. That was the difference. They clutched up a little bit more than we did today."

The Bears scattered 10 hits against Trojans starter Derek Campfield, who threw seven innings, striking out two and walking none. Davis Phillips came in relief in the eighth. Phillips, Josh Hosick, Tanner Tutterow and Jamison Hodge all had two hits apiece for Meridian, with Tutterow also having an RBI to his credit.

"We battled back a couple times," Slesk said. "We had our chances. Just too many mistakes made. Three baserunning errors - that killed us."

Meridian is next in action on Thursday, April 3, against Cascade.
