Although winning the series 3-1 over Shoreline this past weekend, the Bellevue College Bulldogs continued to bury themselves in a hole they created on league-opening weekend by dropping one game over the weekend series for a second consecutive weekend. On Saturday April 29, Bellevue lost the opener by giving up six runs in one inning, relinquishing the lead in a 7-5 loss. In game two, Bellevue won 12-2 in a game that ended early due to the 10-run limit rule. Kash Koltermann picked up his seventh win of the year in his best outing, surrendering zero walks and only four hits in a complete game effort. Dominic Marinez had three hits while Grant DeLappe had three RBI’s.

On Sunday April 30, Bellevue won a pair behind the stellar pitching of starters Elijah Hill and Tyler Williams. Hill won the opener 10-4 as he allowed only three hits in seven innings of work while walking only two. DeLappe continued his hot hitting from the day before with a 2-for-4 outing with 3 RBI’s. In game two, Brennen Hancock hit a grand slam home run as Bellevue, although managing to collect only four hits in the game, capitalized on 11 Shoreline walks and the pitching of Tyler Williams for the win. Eli Herrick came in and dominated in relief throwing a perfect 14 strikes out of 14 pitches and broke two wooden bats of Shoreline hitters in his two innings of shutout relief work.

Bellevue, thanks to a 3-1 series win by Everett over Edmonds, is three games out of first place and must win the series this weekend against Everett for a shot at the North Region title. First pitch is Sunday May 7 at 1:00 p.m. at Courter Field.
