The Sehome softball team had a 4-3 lead going into the seventh inning, but three of the Mariners’ five errors and some costly walks led to a 9-4 loss Monday, March 16, to Burlington-Edison at home.
“We had lots of chances to just blow it open throughout the game and we kept leaving people on base,” Sehome coach Jim Emerson said in a phone interview. “(In the seventh inning) we got one out and then walked the eight and nine hitters and then the floodgates opened up after that. Gotta learn to close it out better.”
Jenny McIntyre was 2 for 3 with two runs scored and a walk, Carissa McDowell was 2 for 4 with a run and an RBI and Tori McDowell was 1 for 4 with an RBI and a double.
Pitcher Mallory Kruzich took the loss for Sehome.
The Mariners play at Mount Baker at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 17.
Burlington-Edison 9, Sehome 4
