Bellingham Suffers 5-3 Setback to Kitsap

06/06/2009 8:58 PM

Bellingham suffered its first loss of the season Saturday as the Kitsap BlueJackets bested the Bells 5-3 in the second game of a three-game series at Joe Martin Field.


After the Bells (1-1) jumped ahead 1-0 lead in the home-half of the third inning, Kitsap (1-1) tallied one run in the fourth, three more in the fifth and another in the sixth to take a lead it would not relinquish.


The BlueJackets benefited from seven stolen bases, including four by Chris Escobar, to constantly keep Bells pitchers on their heels with runners in scoring position.


Bellingham added single runs in the forth and seventh innings, but three errors on the night resulted in two unearned runs for the BlueJackets to create the final margin of defeat.


Brady Locker led the Bells with a 3-for-4 performance at the plate that included a pair of doubles. Out of the bullpen, Ray Hanson and Garrett DeRooy combined to pitch 3 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball for Bellingham.


Kyle Hammon threw six innings for Kitsap to earn the victory while Kelly Contantini faced three batters in the bottom of the ninth to garner the save.


The Bells wrap up their current three-game set with the BlueJackets on Sunday. First pitch is slated for 4 p.m.
