The Bellingham Bells dropped their second straight game in a 3-1 loss Friday night in Port Angeles against the Lefties. The Bells managed just three hits, the same number they collected the previous night in their 16-inning loss to the Edmonton Riverhawks.
The Lefties scored all three of their runs in the second inning, started off by an RBI double from their second baseman, Isaiah Munoz. The next at-bat, Ethan Flodstrom reached second on an error by JR Freethy that scored two Lefties to increase their lead to three. The Bells didn’t score until the ninth inning, when Kyle Parkman hit a double and crossed home plate on an RBI single by Christopher Campos.
John Pfeffer (1-0) took the win for the Lefties, starting the game out with five no-hit innings and three strikeouts. Andrew Hauck took over in the sixth, and allowed one run in four innings to earn the save. Shane Spencer (0-1) started his second game of the season for the Bells, and allowed three runs (none of them earned) in the loss.
The Bells, who have scored two runs on six hits over the past two games, drop to 19-8 with the loss. The Lefties rebound from losing a series sweep to the Corvallis Knights to improve to 12-18 on the season. The two teams will rematch Saturday night in the second of a three game series in Port Angeles.
