Late sports: Sequim baseball, fastpitch teams beat Bremerton

With just a few games remaining in the regular season, Sequim’s baseball and fastpitch teams are eyeing the postseason.

The Wolves took big steps toward playoff berths with victories at Bremerton on May 1.

SHS’s baseball squad locked up the No. 3 berth in the Olympic League with a 14-1 rout of the Knights behind solid pitching of Ian Miller (four innings, three hits, one earned run) and James Grubb (one scoreless, hitless inning). The pair combined for five strikeouts.

Johnnie Young led the Sequim offense, going 2-for-3 with three RBIs, while Grubb, Justin Porter and James Thayer each drove in two.

The Wolves ran wild in the win, with Gavin Velarde accounting for three of the team’s 12 stolen bases. Sequim also drew eight walks off Bremerton pitchers and were error-free in the field.

Sequim’s makeup game with North Kitsap won’t be completed and will be recorded as a tie, Sequim coach Dave Ditlefsen said, after the Vikings clinched the league title Monday; the game would not affect the overall standings.

Sequim’s fastpitch squad improved to 6-4 in league play and 8-7 overall after knocking off their Bremerton hosts 10-5 on Monday.

Sequim scored eight runs in the first four innings and finished with 15 hits. Bobbi Sparks and Shelby Jones led the team with three hits each, while Jordan Bentz and Adrienne Haggerty each had two hits.

Isabelle Dennis took the win on the mound, giving up just three hits over five innings; Shelby Jones finished in relief. Bremerton scored three runs in the first after a couple of Wolves errors and a double Morgan Kroesser, but Sequim’s defense tightened up after that.

Sequim (6-4), Olympic (5-2), Kingston (4-4) and North Kitsap (2-3) are competing for three district playoff spots behind league-leading Port Angeles (9-0).
