Gunderson leads Borderites to NWC baseball win over Storm

Blaine starting pitcher Jon Gunderson gave up eight hits and two runs and struck out two batters in a complete-game 3-2 Northwest Conference victory over Squalicum on Monday, March 28, at Joe Martin Field.

“Well pitched by both sides,” Squalicum coach John Inge said in a phone interview. “(Gunderson) did a heck of a job. Kept us off balance. We didn’t really have a lot of good hits off him.”

Squalicum’s Will Nickelson also pitched a complete game, giving up five hits and three runs and striking out seven for the Storm.

Josh Fakkema was 3 for 3 for Blaine and Cruz Rodriguez, Chase Abshere and Brenden Riddle all knocked in a run for the Borderites.
