The Surf Report – April 6


We’ve entered into the meat of the baseball & softball seasons:  regional play, where every game matters and can mean the difference between a playoff berth and staying home.

Softball played two against Olympic on Saturday.  The Phins offense started strong, scoring 2 in the first.  Brandee Hannahs scored both runs with a 2-out double to the fence, scoring the only Phin runs of the game. The Rangers scored 18 runs on 20 hits, winning 18-2.  Sarah Casel continued her terror on the bases, stealing 3 in game 1, giving her the league lead at 17.

In game 2, the Olympic offense continued to scatter hits, scoring 14 on 16 hits.  Hannah Baisch scored the only Phin run of the game with a double scoring Maddie Roberts.  OC wins 14-1.

Phins travel to Mount Vernon today to meet the Cardinals for 2.  Game times 4 & 6pm.

On the baseball side, the Phin split the series against Bellevue.  In game 1, Henry McAree shut down the Bulldog offesnse, striking out 9 in 6 innings while giving up 3 runs on 6 hits.  Max Dwyer recorded his 4th save of the season, throwing to 2 hitters and striking out both.  Most of the Phin runs came in the 6th, when Jacob Zanon scored on a TJ McCullough sac fly to start a 5-run rally.  Brady Benson hit an RBI single to score 1 and Sam Ballweg scored 3 on a clutch double.  Phins win 7-5.

In game 2, Bellevue came out on top of a classic pitching duel, scoring 2 runs off the off the reliever after Myles Gouviea shutout the Bulldogs, striking out 4 while walking 6.  A 9th inning based-loaded rally fell short for the Phins and BC wins 2-0.

In the first home game of the season, the Phins used a 4-run first to defeat BC 7-5.  The opening rally was sparked by a Cody Wolfe sac fly which scored Drey McInnes.  Ballweg hits and RBI single and Jorgen Arnesen scores Zanon on a deep sac fly to right.  Brady Benson was a highlight in the Phin offense, hitting 3-4 with 2 RBI.

Bellevue jumped all over the game 3 Phin pitchers, scoring 11 in the first two innings while the Phin offense stalled.  The lone bright spot in the offense for Shoreline was a 6th inning 3-run rally.  The Phins scored all 3 on one play with Dylan Wade hitting a RBI single with 2 more runs scoring on BC throwing errors.  BC wins an ugly game 17-3.

Zanon continues to lead the league in batting average, hitting .443 with 27 hits and 12 RBI’s
