Bells drop the second game of their Opening series to Port Angeles
The Bellingham Bells were hitless through the first four innings and fell to the Port Angeles Lefties, 6-1 on Saturday.
The Port Angeles Lefties registered five runs in the top of the first inning – capped off by a two-run home run by catcher Jack Holman that sailed over the right field wall barely missing the foul pole.
Bellingham added a single run in the bottom of the seventh inning when first baseman Dylan Joyce brought home left fielder Daniel Gernon on an RBI double.
In the top of the eighth inning, Port Angeles added to its four-run lead when Leftie second baseman Javy Espinosa cracked a single to center-right field to bring home first baseman Nathan Chong.
Right-handed pitcher Oliver Laufman started for the Bells and received the loss after he gave up four hits, five runs and five walks in 2.2 innings pitched. Left-handed pitcher Justin Miller is credited with the win after going for six innings and allowing one hit.
