The home run was Pierce’s only hit of the night for a Bells squad that had 11 in the contest. Charlie Markson led the way with three hits while Cody Regis and Chris Sturdivant each added a pair.
On the mound, Cody Fassold tossed three innings of one-hit baseball before giving way to the game’s winner, John Vold, and James Wise, who picked up the save after pitching 2 2/3 innings.
Bellingham added to its lead in the fifth inning with a pair of run-scoring doubles by Ben Ruff and Sturdivant. And after the Bucks cut the lead to 4-3, the Bells again quickly extended the lead back to four with three runs in the eighth inning.
The Bells have two off days before returning to action on $2 Tuesday at Joe Martin Field against the Portland Ports beginning at 6:35 p.m. The team also opens its annual youth baseball camp on Monday, July 19, at 9:00 a.m. at Joe Martin Field.
