Bells route Wallbangers in return to Bellingham

06/26/2018 8:47 PM

The line outside was still working its way into a sold-out Joe Martin Field when Bellingham was making some noise in the bottom of the first inning.

Local talent Matt James started the scoring off for Bellingham in its first glance at non-conference play, and the Bells never looked back in a 13-2 route over the Seattle Wallbangers.

In the bottom of the first inning, James ripped a ball to opposite field and it didn’t stand a chance to hit the ground before crashing off the wall for a two-run double. Grant Holman joined the RBI parade following the extra-base knock with a triple of his own in the left-center field gap. A hustling Holman took advantage of the miscommunication on the left side of the outfield, as he slid into third.

The Bells weren’t done scoring runs as the squad really exploded in the bottom of the second. With two down and a runner on first, Bellingham erupted for five runs that began with a double to left field off the bat of Ernie Yake, a hometown favorite.

Holman continued the trend with his second hit of the day and his second RBI to match. Bellingham’s second baseman, Landen Kimbro continues to pour in runs with an RBI knock of his own. Cole Joy then capped the scoring with a two-run single to center field.

The Bells had trouble with their command early on the night, plunking three batters to accompany an abundance of walks. The Bellingham pitching staff got away from most of the danger until- a bases-loaded single in the top of the fifth inning broke up the shutout and chipped away at the 8-2 lead.

Any hope for Seattle was crushed in the bottom of the sixth inning. Zach Needham led off the inning with a no-doubt shot over the right field wall.

As was true in the bottom of the second, the Bells made themselves very comfortable with two outs. A pair of two out walks and a single from Jack Machtolf allowed Marques Carlson to really break things open with a bases-clearing double. Guthrie Morrison then added to the route with a double of his own extending the lead to 13-2.

While the bats really stole the show in front of an energetic capped-out crowd of 2,650, the pitching was nothing short of phenomenal. Aside from working out of some early jams and control issues in the top of the fifth, the Bells pitching staff had complete control.

As a collective the Bells allowed two runs on three hits, to back up the blowout.

While these pair of non-conference games won’t count towards the WCL record, Bellingham was able to showcase why they own a comfortable lead in the North Division.

The Bells will take on the Highline Bears on Wednesday, June 27 before taking to the road to take on the Yakima Valley Pippins.

First pitch against the Bears is scheduled for 6:35 pm.
