Barnes allows one run in 13-1 victory

Ferndale’s baseball team defeated Mount Baker 13-1 on Monday, April 27, at Mount Baker High School.

Brady Shearer, Matt James and Kole Weidkamp each went 2 for 3 with two runs scored and two RBI to lead the Golden Eagles on offense.

“The first three runs they scored (Ferndale) played good baseball,” Mount Baker coach Derek Johnson said in a phone interview. “We walked and hit a few batters. Our errors ended up costing us more runs.”

Grant Balvanz scored the lone run for the Mountaineers and Kolton Zender had the RBI.

Ferndale will take on Squalicum next at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, at Joe Martin Field. Mount Baker plays Lynden Christian next at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, on the road.
