Orcas vs FH baseball | Slideshow

Last Saturday's double-header against Orcas was a mixed bag for the Orcas baseball team.

With only 9 players, the Viking boys baseball team traveled to Shoreline Christian for a 11-3 win on April 5.

“We were missing some guys that are sick and a couple are on trips, so everybody played and contributed,” said Coach Jim Passer. “It was a very balanced team win and probably our best all around game of the year. We did not hit that great, but Miles Harlow pitched well and Ivan Bullock did a good job in relief.”

On April 9, the Vikings played a double header against Friday Harbor and split the series but fell short of a league win.

“This year Cedar Park dropped out of the league and the net effect is now our double headers with La Conner and Friday Harbor consist of one league game on one non-league game,” Passer said. “The first game, which was our league game, we lost 9-3 and we were in it until the sixth inning. We were playing pretty well but fell apart and you can’t do that against a solid team like the Wolverines. You can’t make mistakes. The highlight of the game was a home run by Aidan Kruse. He absolutely nailed it and sent it way out of the park. The second game we won 12-9 but we were down 8-1 in the sixth inning. Top of the sixth we opened it up. It was pretty sweet and it was nice to hand Friday Harbor their first loss of the season.”

The boys next play on Friday, April 22 at 2 p.m. at home against Shoreline Christian.
