The Bellingham Bells had another dominating pitching performance and Matt James homered to send the Bells back into the win column with a 6-2 win over the Wenatchee Applesox.
Bellingham scored first again tonight as they plated a run in the second inning after Jordan Stoner reached third and scored on a sacrifice fly from Matt McLain to give the Bells a 1-0 lead. The Bells would tack on another in the third on an RBI single from Dusty Stroup to make it 2-0.
The fifth inning is where the Bells really broke loose. After two walks to open up the inning, James hit a laser to right field that left the ballpark and made it 5-0 Bells.
The Applesox plated two in the bottom of the fifth inning after a two-run double from Evan Williams but that is as close as they would get.
The Bells scored another run in the seventh to push the lead to 6-2 and that was all she wrote.
Wesley Moore delivered another good start for the Bells going 4.2 innings allowing just two runs on three hits while striking out eight.
The bullpen comprised of Davis Baille, Austin Weiermiller and Ben Leeper threw 4.1 innings of shutout baseball to lock down the win for the Bells.
Baille got the win for the Bells to improve to 2-1 on the year while Grady Miller took the loss for the Applesox.
The win pushes the Bells record to 20-11 on the year and they are the first team in the league to reach the 20-win mark.
Bellingham will look to win the series on Thursday before they head back to Bellingham on Friday.
