Top-ranked Arlington squeaks by Oak Harbor / Baseball

The Oak Harbor High School baseball team didn’t defeat top-ranked Arlington, but the visiting Wildcats made the Eagles sweat in a 1-0 game Tuesday, April 23.

Arlington, unbeaten in 14 league games and 16 overall, moved to the top spot in the Washington Baseball Poll 3A rankings this week. Oak Harbor was the first Wesco team to push the Eagles, who have been winning league contests by an average of nearly nine runs.

The two teams play in Oak Harbor at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 24, and in Arlington at 4 p.m. Friday, April 26.

Arlington 1, Oak Harbor 0

Arlington scored off an error in the sixth inning to sneak by Oak Harbor.

The unearned run spoiled a nice outing by Wildcat starter Jacksyn Pawlowicz, who spread out eight hits while striking out one and walking none in five innings. Andrew Dixon pitched one inning.

As good as Pawlowicz was, Arlington’s Cameron Smith was better, tossing a two hitter with 11 strikeouts and no walks.

Oak Harbor’s best chance to score came in the top of the fourth. Noah Meffert singled and Donny Kloewer reached on an error. Thomas Anderson bunted the runners up, but a strikeout and flyout ended the threat.

In the fifth with two outs, Caleb Fitzgerald reached on an error and went to second on a wild pitch but was left stranded.

Kloewer singled in the first with two outs for Oak Harbor’s only other hit.
