Anacortes baseball hands Squalicum a 1-0 defeat

Two of the top teams in the Northwest Conference battled it out but Anacortes came up with the only needed run in a 1-0 Northwest Conference victory over Squalicum on Friday, March 25, at Joe Martin Field.

“Anacortes is a very good team. Their pitcher (Joe Brennan) was solid. We couldn’t get a big hit when we needed it,” Squalicum coach John Inge said in a phone interview. “It was an electrifying atmosphere for a game in the middle of March.”

Ernie Yake was the tough-luck loser giving up four hits and one run with four strikeouts and only giving up one walk in a complete game.

Yake also had two of Squalicum’s four hits, and Bunji McLoud and Jack Boysen each had a hit.
