Bellingham secured a winning record with the win, its first since joining the WCL in 2005. Frank Desico led the way for the Bells with a 4-for-4 performance at the plate while also scoring a pair of runs. Shortstop Cody Regis also made a number of contributions as he drove in four runs on two hits.
In a predetermined split on the mound, Cordell Greene, John Volk, and Cody Fassold combined to allow just five hits and held Kitsap off the board through 8 2/3 innings before the road team drove across its lone run in the ninth.
Volk was credited with the win after throwing four innings of middle relief in which he struck out one and gave up just two hits.
The Bells broke the scoreless game in the fifth inning on a two-run single by Regis that plated Desico and Chris Sturdivant. Bellingham added to its lead with three runs in the seventh on a Regis double and a run-scoring single by Brady Locker.
Bellingham wraps up the 2010 regular season Saturday, Aug. 7. Game time for the season finale is set for 6:35 p.m. with fireworks scheduled to follow the final out. For more information or to order tickets, call the Bells Ticket Office at 527-1035.
