Phins Off to a Slow Start

Shoreline CC Dolphins host Edmonds CC Tritons in NWAACC first weekend of 2014 league play at Meridian Park, Shoreline, Wa.

Freshman Pitcher Brad Bennett

The Shoreline Dolphin Baseball team can’t seem to get in sync during region play. The Dolphins suffered four tough losses this weekend being swept by Bellevue.

The Dolphins started off the weekend at Bellevue with Mitch Mondor on the mound. Bellevue scored first in the first inning with on an error and succession of stolen bases. Shoreline answered quickly on a double by Casey Fithian to score Darwin Bean.

Bellevue took the game in the fourth inning and the Dolphins weren’t able to respond. The Bulldogs scored three runs on back to back doubles by Kurt Lindemann and Nick Pribble. The Bulldogs won with a final score of 4-1.

In game two at Bellevue was a battle of the bats. Both teams scoring early and consistently. Bradley Spencer, Lloyd Edwards and Jaris Beasley each pitching at least two  innings in a seven inning game. Jorgen Arneson and Sam Ballweg both had two RBI doubles for the Dolphins but it wasn’t enough. The Bulldogs took game two with a final score of 11-6.

Freshman Center Fielder Jacob Zanon

On Sunday Bellevue traveled to Meridian Park. Game one of the double header was a pitching battle. Brad Bennett pitched for the Dolphins and Nick Kiel came to the mound as Bellevue’s top pitcher. With four hits in the game the Dolphins were unable to get on the board. The winning run came from a sacrifice fly by Kurt Lindemann scoring Joakim Soderqvist.

Like in Bellevue game two was full of excitement. Bellevue hit early scoring six runs in the first inning against Mike McCormack to take a daunting lead. Shoreline was able to score right back with bases loaded walks.

Shoreline continued to score including a triple by Jacob Zanon and a lead off home run by Casey Fithian. In the end it wasn’t enough and the Dolphins fell 11-6 giving the Bulldogs the sweep.

Shoreline now has a region record of 0-8 and an overall record of 4-14. The Dolphins move to take on Everett Community College. They are currently 0-2 in region play and finish their series with Douglas College this weekend.
