Snohomish knocks OH out of district tournament / Baseball

After cutting an early deficit to one, the Oak Harbor High School baseball team couldn’t climb all the way back and was eliminated from the district tournament 7-3 at Snohomish Tuesday, May 7.

The Wildcats finished the season with a 10-13 record.

Snohomish (11-11) hit home runs in each of the first two inning to go up 4-1.

Oak Harbor scored its run in the top of the second when Taylor Rummel singled and was driven home on Aiden McCarthy’s ground out.

The Wildcats scored twice in the fourth to trim the Panthers’ lead to 4-3. Thomas Anderson walked and was safe at second on Andrew Dixon’s fielder’s choice that didn’t produce an out. McCarthy walked to load the bases.

With two outs, Caleb Fitzgerald walked to force in one run, then Dixon scored on a wild pitch.

That was it for the Oak Harbor scoring, and Snohomish plated three runs in its half of the fourth to tally the final runs.

The Panthers finished with 11 hits, four for extra bases (two home runs and two doubles).

Oak Harbor had only four hits: Donny Kloewer tripled, McCarthy doubled and Rummel and Dixon singled.
