Prep baseball roundup: Lions benefit from Borderites’ errors

The Blaine baseball team stormed back from a 5-1 deficit in the seventh inning to take a 6-5 lead only to commit two errors on a Lynden sacrifice bunt in the bottom of the seventh during Lynden’s 7-6 victory Tuesday, March 15, at Lynden.

“The way (Blaine) fought to get back in the game, it’s a tough way to lose a game,” Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview. “I was proud of our kids. Win or lose, it was a good game.”

Trevin Hope (1-0) got off the hook and earned the victory as he pitched the top of the seventh. Anthony Garcia pitched five innings for Lynden, striking out four and giving up one hit.

Jared House was 2 for 3 with a double and three RBI and Rylan Severson was 1 for 2 with two RBI for the Lions, and Josh Fakkema was 1 for 3 with two RBI for Blaine.
