Babe Ruth: Oak Harbor drops extra-inning game

Anacortes used a five-run eighth inning to get by the host Oak Harbor Babe Ruth baseball team 9-5 at Clover Valley Park Thursday, June 9.

Three walks, three singles and a double fueled the big eighth as the visitors pulled out the extra-inning game.

Oak Harbor used a four-run third inning to erase a 2-0 Anacortes lead. Dustin Costin started the frame with a line-drive double. Brent Mertins and Brandon Bailey followed with singles, then Daniel Wolfe walloped a home run to cap the scoring.

Mertins finished the game 3-for-3 with two doubles.

Oak Harbor travels to the Lynden Tournament Saturday and Sunday, June 11 and 12, and opens play with games against the Abbotsford Angles and Eastside Huskies.
