PREP BASEBALL ROUNDUP: Sage leads Storm to win

eabell@bhamherald.com

Squalicum scored two first-inning runs, and Connor Sage struck out 10 batters in six innings while only giving up two hits to lead the Storm to a 3-1 nonleague win over Bellingham on Saturday, March 19, at Joe Martin Field.

Bunji McLeod and J.P. Pacheaco drove in early runs, and Willie Weber added an RBI double in the sixth inning.

Bellingham, which was without star Austin Shenton, managed three hits but received a strong pitching performance.

“Bellingham gave us a good battle, and Connor pitched an oustanding game,” Storm coach John Inge said. “He had his good stuff today.”

Bellingham’s run came in the seventh inning, and Yake earned a save for Squalicum.
