Two excellent pitching performances highlighted the Oak Harbor Legion baseball team's championship run through the Skagit Wood Bat Invitational Tournament in Mount Vernon July 5-7.

Oak Harbor, behind a one-hitter by Teddy Peterschmidt, ripped Bellingham's Post 7 10-1 Sunday, July 7, in the championship game at the Skagit Valley Dream Field.

Friday at the Dream Field, Oak Harbor stopped the Seattle Stars 8-3 and the Victoria Mariners 1-0.

In the win over the Mariners, Brent Mertins singled in the seventh and scored all the way from first on a hit-and-run base hit by Anthony Stewart for the game's only run.

Saturday at Sherman Anderson Field, Oak Harbor fell to the Washington Rush 5-1, and then earned a spot in the title game with a 3-1 win on Mertins' no hitter over Bellevue's Phiten.

Oak Harbor (18-9) goes to Stanwood Tuesday, July 9, for a double header beginning at 3 p.m. and then hosts Ferndale Thursday, July 11, at 2 p.m. for another twin bill.

The two double headers are the final league games.

(More details on the Skagit Tournament will be added soon.)
