The Bellingham Bells broke their two-game losing streak in a 9-7 win Saturday night in Port Angeles against the Lefties. Jack Van Remortel hit homeruns in the first and last innings of the game, finishing with 5 RBI’s, to help break the streak.

Van Remortel scored Kyle Parkman and Nate Clow as part of his 3-run homer in the first, then Blake Conrad scored on a passed ball to give the Bells an early 4-0 lead. They added two more on in the second, when Clow scored on another passed ball and Christopher Campos hit an RBI single to score Van Remortel from second.

In the third, Lefties shortstop Riley Parker hit a sac fly to give the team their first run of the game. The Bells tacked on two more in the fourth, but the Lefties rallied back in the bottom of the inning. Four of their first five batters up hit singles, then Parker cleared the bases with a 3-run double to cap off a five run fourth inning.

Port Angeles scored one more run in the fifth to trim the Bells’ lead to 8-7, though the Lefties wouldn’t score for the remainder of the game. Van Remortel hit his second homer of the night, a solo shot in the ninth, to give the Bells one more for good measure and leave the game at 9-7.

Cody Delvecchio (1-1) earned his first win in league-play this season, allowing four runs through 3.1 innings pitched. Campos took the mound in the ninth, and got three straight outs to collect his fourth save of the year. Nathan Criswell (0-3) took the loss for the Lefties, after he wasn’t able to record an out in the fourth and gave up three walks.

The Bells finish out their series against the Lefties Sunday afternoon to decide the winner after splitting the first two games, with Brandt Pancer getting his first start on the mound this season.
