Fast-starting Seagulls soar by Oak Harbor / Baseball

This one was pretty much over before the Oak Harbor High School baseball team got a chance to bat.

The first 10 Everett batters all reached base and scored in the Seagulls’ 14-0, five-inning win on the Wildcats’ diamond Friday, April 5.

Everett won the three-game series 2-1 and pushed its Wesco record to 5-4 (7-4 overall).

Oak Harbor (3-4, 4-5) will attempt to bounce back against Snohomish (6-4, 6-6) this week. The Panthers will host the Wildcats Tuesday and Friday, April 9 and 12, and the teams will play in Oak Harbor at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 10.

Hitting with a strong wind at its back, Everett’s first inning started like this: triple, single, hit batter, double, walk, double, single, single, triple, double. That string was broken by a strikeout and two grounders to second base, but the damage was done.

The Seagulls finished the game with 13 hits, including three doubles and two triples. Abe Affholter led the way with three hits; he had a triple and double in the first inning.

While Everett was piling up the hits, Oak Harbor managed only one off the Seagulls’ Nick Mardesich: Caleb Fitzgerald’s second-inning single. Mardesich, however, was not dominating, striking out only one and walking six.
