Sequim starter Connor Bear was nearly unhittable, giving up one base hit — a bloop single to center by Nolan McGanney — and one unearned run in the third inning as the Wolves picked up their first league win of the season, a 5-1 home victory on April 25.
Bear struck out eight and walked one.
Sequim jumped to an early 2-0 lead after one inning, added a run in the fifth and two insurance runs in the sixth.
Jennings, who added two scoreless innings of relief, was 1-for-3 and drove in two at the plate while Bear, Jaxson Gray, Zac McCracken and Ethan Staples each had hits.
Bucs, Trojans edge Wolves
Sequim nearly had a second league win in a row, but couldn’t overcome a tough start in a 3-2, five-inning loss at Kingston on April 27.
The Buccaneers pushed across three runs in the first, including a two-run single by Gavin Garner, to edge the Wolves.
Bear went 2-for-3 with an RBI and Ayden Holland had a single, double and walk for Sequim.
Ricky Jennings took the loss on the mound, striking out five Bucs in five innings.
Sequim (1-11 league, 2-14 overall) nearly kept pace with Olympic but couldn’t muster enough offense in a 6-2 loss at home on April 28.
MacCracken and Gray combined to throw seven strong innings, giving up two earned runs while striking out 10 Trojans.
Olympic pitchers, however, kept Sequim off balance, giving up one hit and three walks while striking out eight.
Braiden White had Sequim’s lone hit; he and McCracken each had a stolen base.
Sequim was slated to host rival Port Angeles on May 2; results were not available at press time. The Roughriders topped Sequim 10-0 on April 11.
The Wolves were also scheduled to play at Mariner High School (Bellevue) on May 3.
