Bellingham Falls In 10th Against Bend

08/04/2009 9:17 PM

BELLINGHAM, Wash. Bellingham gave up two leads Tuesday, Aug. 4, as Bend overcame one-run and three-run deficits to grab the 8-5, extra-innings win, putting the Bells playoff hopes on life support.

 

Bellingham went up 1-0 in the bottom of the first as Bells lead-off man Brady Locker scored on a Trent Bridges sacrifice fly. Bend tied things in the second and the game remained knotted at one until the Bells plated three runs in the sixth inning.

 

Bells starter J.D. Haver had a one-hit, one-run gem going through the first seven innings, but after recording two outs in the eighth, Haver and the Bells fell apart as the Elks again pulled even with three  more runs.

 

Haver left the game with a 4-2 lead, but left a runner on base and Jordan Foster allowed the base-runner to score and gave up the game-tying run without recording another out. Seth Harvey closed out the frame for Bellingham and recorded two outs in the ninth before giving up a two-out run to the Elks.

 

With Bend needing just one out to steal the game and inch closer to securing the final playoff spot in the West Division, Bellingham’s Trent Bridges hit a chopper to third-baseman Corey Valine who sailed the ball past his first-baseman allowing the Bells to tie the game at five.

 

Harvey returned to the mound in the 10th, but again surrendered the go-ahead run to Bend before being chased from the game. Garrett DeRooy replaced Harvey and allowed two of his inherited runners to score before getting the final out of the inning.

 

The Bells were led by Sam Richter at the plate. The shortstop was 2 of 5 with a pair of doubles; he also scored the game-tying run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Bend’s throwing error.

 

Bellingham and Bend return to Joe Martin Field on Wednesday, Aug. 5, for game two of the three-game series. First pitch for the game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
