Bells Roll Through Yakima for Fifth Straight Win

07/01/2018 8:31 PM

The Bellingham Bells continued to dominate as they finished off their third sweep of the year with an 8-1 win over Yakima Valley on Sunday night.

The win pushed the Bells win streak to five straight games in the WCL.

The Bells got things started by scoring a run in the top of the third inning after they capitalized on two throwing errors and Guthrie Morrison came home to score.

The Pippins tied the game at one, but Bellingham was able to come right back and take the lead in the fifth on an RBI single from Zach Needham that brought Jordan Stoner home to score.

Bellingham would being to blow things open scoring two in the sixth, one in the seventh and three in the ninth to push the lead to 8-1.

Landon Kimbro was sensational today as he reached base five times and went 4-4 at the plate including a double. It is the second time this year that a Bells' player has reached base five times in a game. 

The Bells got a great pitching performance from Ben Leeper who worked four innings and allowed just one run while striking out three.

Trevor DeLaite and Theron Kay worked five scoreless innings out of the bullpen to lock down the win for the Bells. 

Bellingham is now 18-6 on the year and will continue their first half schedule on Monday as they open up a six game home stand against the Victoria Harbourcats at Joe Martin Field at 6:35.
