Bells Return Home Tied for Second

07/23/2009 7:32 AM

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – After playing their last 14 West Coast League games on the road, the Bellingham Bells return to Joe Martin Field for an exhibition game Thursday, July 23, before returning to league action at home on Friday, July 24, against the Bend Elks.


Bellingham ended its last road trip with four straight losses, including a series sweep to league-leading Corvallis, but the bells are in a great position with 11 of their final 15 WCL games at home where they are 12-6 overall this season—8-5 in WCL action.


The Bells are hoping to build on their current eight-game win streak at Joe Martin Field and earn a spot in the WCL postseason. Currently, the Bells are tied with Bend for the final playoff spot in the West Division; both teams are 10 games behind Corvallis.


Thursday, July 23, marks the final exhibition game of the season for Bellingham as the Bells host the Seattle Studs of the Pacific International League. Action then heats up at The Joe Friday, July 24, as the Bells open a three-game set against Bend looking to create some separation in the standings. Bellingham then hosts Corvallis for three crucial games beginning Tuesday, July 28, before playing two at home against the Kitsap BlueJackets to wrap up a nine-game homestand.


But after a one-night road trip to Kitsap, the Bells are back at home for three more games against Bend before wrapping up the season with three more games on the road against Kitsap.
