Fastpitch: Sequim edges Kingston, falls at Olympic

One big inning.

That’s what the Wolves needed — and got — to edge league foe Kingston 5-0 at home on April 12.

Christy Grubb had a two-run double, Taylee Rome followed with a run-scoring single and Katelyn Glass drove in two with a single as Sequim erupted for all five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.

The outburst, coupled with outstanding defense, helped preserve an Angel Wagner shutout. Despite not recording a strikeout, Wagner and the Wolves held the Buccaneers to three baserunners: two walks and one hit-by-batter that was erased on a steal attempt.

The win helped Sequim snap a two-game losing streak. The teams meet again on May 5 in Kingston.

Olympic spoiled any chance of Sequim (3-3 in Olympic League play, 6-3 overall) starting a winning streak two days later, winning a 15-9 slugfest in Silverdale. Details were not available at press time.
