The Bellingham Bells saw their 14 game winning streak come to an end Wednesday, July 9, at Joe Martin Field, falling to the Kitsap BlueJackets 12-3 in a West Coast League game.
The BlueJackets jumped on Bells starting pitcher Grant Goodman, who managed just 1 2/3 innings pitched after surrendering six runs.
The Bells didn't get on the board until the bottom of the fourth after trailing 7-0, scoring three runs after Chris Baker singled in Walker Olis followed by a two-out, two-run single by Scott Heath that scored Baker and Dustin Breshears.
Kitsap added three runs in the sixth and two runs in the seventh to end a 13-game losing streak of its own.
The Bells (20-6) still sit atop the West division with an 8.5-game lead over the Victoria HarbourCats. Bellingham's next game is Thursday, July 10, against Kelowna at Elks Stadium.
