Long weekend for Wildcats / Baseball

It was a long bus ride and long weekend on the field for the Oak Harbor High School baseball Friday and Saturday, March 17 and 18.

The Wildcats lost to host Hanford 10-0 Friday night and then fell to Pendleton, Ore., 12-1 Saturday in Hanford. Both games covered six innings.

Oak Harbor (0-1, 0-3) returns to Western Conference play this week. Tuesday the Wildcats go to Everett (1-0, 1-0) and then host Marysville-Pilchuck (0-0, 0-1) at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Hanford 10, Oak Harbor 0

Although Brad Poletski and Chorde Durflinger combined to no-hit the Wildcats, Oak Harbor was in the game until the sixth when the Falcons scored six runs on only one hit, thanks to three walks and two hit batters.

The Wildcats had plenty of baserunners (Hanford walked nine) but couldn’t muster a hit to take advantage.

The Falcons finished with only five hits.

Trent Benson and Steven Richards each walked twice for Oak Harbor.

Pendleton 12, Oak Harbor 1

The Buckaroos scored in every inning but the first to roll by the Wildcats.

Oak Harbor’s run came in the fourth on an error, walk and two hit batters.

Aiden McCarthy doubled and James Besaw singled for the Wildcats’ only hits.

Daniel Naughton was 3-for-3 with a double and triple for Pendleton.
