Locker Hits Walk Off Home Run in 5-2 Win

06/30/2010 4:39 PM The Bellingham Bells were held scoreless by Walla Walla’s Ryan Richardson through the first eight innings of Wednesday afternoon’s Banner Bank Day Game, then the flood gates opened as Brady Locker hit a three-run, game-ending home run in the bottom of the ninth to give Bellingham the 5-2 victory that clinched the series.

Starter Cody Fassold gave up both Walla Walla runs in the first inning after allowing a single, walking a batter, and hitting another to give the Sweets the early lead. Fassold only surrendered one other hit during his eight innings on the mound while striking out seven.

Behind 2-0 heading into the final frame, the Bells turned the ball over to Andy Seaman who made his Bells debut. Seaman threw a hitless ninth before letting the Bells bats get to work.

With one out, Chris Pierce singled to center field before the Sweets replaced Richardson with Zach Clanton. Clanton then gave up a single to Chris Sturdivant, allowed a double steal by Pierce and Sturdivant, and surrendered a two-run single to Ben Ruff. Ruff scored three batters later when Locker hit his second home run of the season to send the Bells into an off day on Thursday with a 13-10 record and a chance to pull even with second-place Kitsap pending the outcome of Wednesday evenings West Coast League games.

“We’ve had some guys battling through some injuries and some bugs of late and it was great to see our bats come alive there late,” Bells head coach Kevin Matthews said. “Cody really settled down after the first inning and kept our guys in this game until they were able to give him some help.”

Fassold did not factor into the decision as Seaman was credited with the win. He did however add to his league-leading strikeout total. Fassold now has 37 strikeouts in 31 1/3 innings pitched—15 more strikeouts than any other pitcher in the West Coast League.

After an off day on Thursday, the Bells return to Joe Martin Field for a one game against the Kitsap BlueJackets on Friday, July 2 beginning at 6:35 p.m. Friday is the Bells’ annual U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Fireworks Extravaganza. The pre-game ceremony will include some extra fireworks, special introductions, and a flyover. Fans can also come out early to visit with CBP personnel and see some the exciting displays that will be both inside and outside of Joe Martin Field.

Everyone is also invited to stick around after the game for the CBP Post-Game Fireworks Extravaganza. The fireworks show is the first in Bellingham celebrating Independence Day and is the kickoff to the Fourth of July weekend. Tickets are still available for Friday’s game with general admission tickets going for just $2 at the door. For more information, call the Bells Ticket Office at 360-527-1035.
