Mistakes sink Coupeville / Babe Ruth baseball

Sedro-Woolley took advantage of seven walks and five errors to defeat the Coupeville Babe Ruth baseball team 13-3 in five innings in the 14-year-old district tournament Monday, June 26, in Burlington.

The teams will continue the best-of-three series at 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday (if necessary).

Regardless of the outcome, both teams will advance to the state tournament. The district tournament is being held to determine seeding into the state playoffs.

The tone for Monday’s game was set early as Sedro-Woolley scored three runs in each of the first two innings on only one hit.

All three of Coupeville’s runs came in the third inning with the help of walks to Daniel Olson, George Dailey and Cody Roberts and singles by Caleb Meyer and Ulrik Wells.

Dailey finished with two singles, and Scott Hilborn, Meyer and Wells had one each.
