Sehome’s baseball team gave up a game-tying run in the seventh and the eventual game-winning runs in the top of the 10th, as the Mariners suffered a 3-1 non-league loss to Anacortes on Tuesday, March 24, in Anacortes.
The game originally was scheduled at home, but due to field conditions, it was moved to Anacortes with the Mariners still playing as the home club.
Sehome took a 1-0 lead in the fourth when Leif Anderson drove in Jake Albert with an infield sacrifice, but the Seahawks tied the game in the top of the seventh.
Anacortes’ Jordan Neville, who earned the win on the mound, drove in the eventual winning runs in the top of the 10th with a bloop single. Kealohi Grondin took the loss for Sehome.
“Both teams played extremely well, defensively,” Sehome coach Gary Hatch said in a phone interview. “We had too many base on balls. It seemed like they had guys on second and third all night. We were just able to wiggle out of it.”
Anacortes left 17 runners on base. Owen Wright recorded two of the Mariners’ four hits, and Tyler Hruby and Albert each had a hit.
The Mariners (3-4) open league play against Burlington-Edison at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 26.
