Shorecrest scored all the runs it needed in the first inning to pull out a 8-1 win over the visiting Oak Harbor baseball team Friday, March 23.
The Scots (1-0, 3-1) mixed hits, walks and errors to tally twice in each of the first two innings then tacked on four more runs in the fourth to win the league opener for both schools.
While the Shorecrest offense was spurred by Hayden McNabb, who slugged two doubles and a home run for three RBI, its defense was led by pitcher Ted Hammond who struck out 11 in five innings of work.
Oak Harbor scraped together only four hits, singles by Jack Richter, Anthony Stewart, Grant Schroeder and Sam Glavick.
The Wildcats' lone run came in the third when Mike Maletto walked and scored on Glavick's hit.
Andrew Snavely took the loss, giving up four runs (two earned), two hits and three walks in one-and-a-third innings of work.
Dimitri Munoz finished the game and surrendered four runs (three earned) on six hits.
The two teams meet again in Oak Harbor at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 27.
The Wildcats (0-1, 2-2) begin their next series at Marysville Getchell (0-1, 0-5) Wednesday and then host the Chargers at 4 p.m. Friday.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
