After going winless for its first 12 games, the Oak Harbor High School baseball team won two of its next three, including a 3-2 win over visiting Marysville Getchell Tuesday, April 18.

Wednesday’s game at Marysville Getchell was rained out and rescheduled for 4 p.m. Monday, April 24, at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.

Oak Harbor 3, Marysville Getchell 2

Oak Harbor had to come from behind twice to defeat Getchell.

The Chargers tallied in the top of the first inning and the score remained 1-0 until the Wildcats plated a run in the fourth. Trent Benson and Steven Richards both singled, then Benson scored on an error.

Getchell used a walk and two singles to go up 2-1 in the top of the sixth.

Oak Harbor countered by scoring twice in its half of the inning. With one out, Dylan Bailey singled, moved to second on a ground out and then scored on Richards’ base hit. Taylor Rummel’s two-strike pinch hit put runners at the corners. Aiden McCarthy, running for Richards, scored the winning run when the Wildcats pulled off a double steal.

Richards and Benson each finished with two hits. Bailey, Rummel and Austin Boesch all singled in the game.

In addition to being one of the hitting stars, Richards picked up the pitching win. The senior left-hander pitched a four hitter, striking out five and walking two.

“Steven pitched lights out,” co-coach Cody Anderson said.

Oak Harbor struck out only twice and produced a number of “quality at-bats,” he added. “All in all, it was a good game.”
