The Dolphins struggled during last weekends play against the Douglas Royals. Although Shoreline was able to keep the games close the Royals took all four wins sweeping the Dolphins.

On Saturday the Dolphins traveled north for a rainy day in Canada to take on the Royals. Game one began with Mitch Mondor on the mound. It was a pitching battle and tied 1-1 up to the fifth inning. The Dolphins took 1 run lead with a sacrifice fly by Cody Wolfe scoring Casey Fithian. The Royals were able to strike back scoring four runs, a deficit the Dolphins could not make up leaving the final score 6-4 Royals.

The teams struggled through the rain trying two finish game two but only made it through three and half innings at Douglas. Leaving the puddles behind the teams finished the game in Shoreline. Although Josh Herrera was able to hold the Royals on Sunday the Dolphin bats were not able to score any runs. The Royals took the shutout for a 5-0 win.

Shortly after the finish of game two Shoreline began their home doubleheader with Chase Kairis on the mound. The Dolphins took the 2-1 lead in the second inning taking advantage of a Douglas errors but it didn’t last long. The Royals struck back retaking the lead on back to back hits.

The teams were all tied up going into the sixth inning but the Dolphins could not hold on. The Royals score two more to take a 5-3 win.

In the final game of the weekend and finishing of 21 innings of play on Sunday Shoreline brought Brad Bennett to the mound. Shoreline struggled at bat against Douglas’s Jamie Whitehead only earning six hits. Giving up four runs in the fourth Bennett was unable to hold off the Royals. The Dolphins lost to a final score of 1-8 giving Douglas the sweep.

Struggling through many tough injuries and a small pitching staff the Dolphins look to recover over the bi-week. They will return to play on May 3rd taking on the Olympic Rangers in Bremerton and will return home to Meridian Park on May 4th.
