Bells see winnings streak come to an end


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.
