A strong pitching performance by Grant Schroeder wasn't enough as the Oak Harbor baseball team lost 2-0 at Shorewood Friday, April 6.
Schroeder combined with Zach Zimmer, who entered in the sixth, to toss a four-hitter, but the Wildcats countered with only three hits off Thunderbird pitchers Ian Oxnivad and Sam Boone.
A two-out single in the sixth broke the scoreless tie.
Coach Tyson VanDam said, "Grant threw a great game but we came up short."
Oak Harbor (1-6, 3-7) and Shorewood (1-4, 2-6) meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, in Oak Harbor. The Wildcats also host Everett (4-3, 4-5) at 4 p.m. Wednesday.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
