Baseball: Wolves snap streak with wins over Kingston, Coupeville

Sequim’s baseball squad ended an early-season losing streak with a pair of wins last week, erupting for 19 runs in the road victories.

A solid pitching effort from ace Ethan Staples and a three-RBI day from Bryant Laboy helped Sequim earn its first Olympic League win of the season, a 9-5 victory at Kingston on March 26.

Staples went five innings, allowing just two hits and one unearned run while striking out seven.

Brayden White was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored, while Hunter Tennell had a double, two runs scored, two walks and an RBI. Zeke Schmadeke and Ayden Holland each had a hit and RBI. The following day, Sequim 10-runned 1A Coupeville in a battle of Wolves, taking advantage of the host team’s wildness with nine walks. Holland was 2-for-2 with a double, two RBIs and and two bases on balls, while Laboy was two-for-3 with two RBIs and Devyn Dearinger drove in a pair.

Lincoln Bear got the start and allowed just one hit and struck out six. Dearinger and Schmadeke tossed two scoreless innings, and the Wolves (1-4 in league, 3-4 overall) were error-free in the field.

Looking ahead

During the spring break week, Sequim plays a non-league contest at Mount Tahoma on April 5, and gets back into Olympic League play April 9 at Port Angeles, before hosting Port Angeles on April 11.
