Ferndale avoided being no-hit in a 3-0 nonconference loss to Shorewood on Wednesday, April 1, at Meridian Park Field in Shoreline.
The only Golden Eagle hit came from Kyle Sandstrom, who was 1 for 3 with a stolen base.
“The guy we faced today was pretty good. He was the real deal,” Ferndale coach Donny Hennigs said in a phone interview. “The first time getting out of our league into the Wesco left us with a little culture shock, I think.”
Hennigs said the game will help Ferndale learn to make adjustments and new ways to try to get on base.
