The Bellingham Bells came out of the gates firing on all cylinders with seven runs in the first four innings aided by four innings of stout pitching from RHP Zack Simon ,who did not allow a single hit and threw four strikeouts.

But the Bells lost the handle in the top of the sixth inning and came up short through 10 innings, 10-7.

The Lefties started to climb back in the ball game in the top of the sixth inning when centerfielder Garrett Lake launched a solo home run to right field.

Port Angeles added two more runs in the seventh by way of a couple RBI singles, and in the top of the eighth inning the Lefties loaded the bases and scored three before the inning concluded.

In the top of the ninth, Garrett Lake roped his second solo shot of the night to right field and tied the game at 7-7.

Bellingham tried to respond in the bottom of the ninth with bases loaded, but Kaden Lewis tossed three consecutive strikeouts to send the game to extra innings.

In the top of the 10th inning, Lake, again, cracked a two-run home run to right field and pinch hitter Corey Sanchez drove in third baseman Coleman Schmidt from third base to give the Lefties their first lead of the game.

With one out in the bottom of the tenth inning, Bells right fielder Zac Berryman advanced to first with a base hit. But left fielder Daniel Gernon grounded into a 6-4-3 double play and the Lefties received the series victory.

The Bells will host the Yakima Valley Pippins on Tuesday at 6:35p.m. Tickets are available at
