The Oak Harbor Legion baseball team picked up a couple nail-biter wins over host Anacortes Thursday, July 7.
Oak Harbor won the opener 1-0 and then took the nightcap 5-4.
The wins set Oak Harbor's league record at 10-2 with two games left. Bellingham, which leads the conference with a 9-1 mark, has four games remaining.
Andrew Snavely fired a four-hit shut out to carry Oak Harbor in game one.
Oak Harbor scored the game's lone run in the fifth when Jack Richter walked and moved around on an error, hit batter and walk.
Anthony Steward doubled and Ben Etzell singled for the only Oak Harbor hits.
Left fielder Etzell also helped on the defensive end by cutting down a run at the plate in the fourth.
In game two, Etzell started on the mound and took a five hitter into the seventh. He got relief from Cory Cameron who came in with two outs in the seventh and recorded a strike out with the tying and winning runs onboard.
Etzell also led the offense with two hits, one a double, and two runs. Austyn Walker was 2-for-4 with a run and RBI.
Oak Harbor goes to Stanwood Sunday, July 10, for a double header beginning at 1 p.m.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
