Bellevue College baseball won two games over Skagit Valley College on Saturday April 26 by scores of 7-0 and 7-5. In game one, Sheldon Stober hit his first home run of the year; a grand slam in the second inning which gave Bellevue breathing room early for Nick Kiel, who went six scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 1.10 on the year. In game two, Bellevue jumped out 4-0 in the first inning before Skagit answered right back with four runs in the top of the second inning. Bellevue then added runs in the fourth, sixth, and seventh innings before Skagit’s big rally in the eighth. After scoring a run, Skagit loaded the bases with two outs and one hit away from tying the game. Cody Culp entered and promptly struck out the only batter he needed to face to end the rally. He then fanned two of three in a 1-2-3 perfect ninth to earn the save.  Bellevue’s doubleheader at Skagit on Sunday April 27 has been postponed due to field conditions and will now be played tomorrow Monday April 28 at 4pm.
