SCC Baseball Swept By Skagit Valley, Battle The Cardinals Today At Meridian Park:

After 7 hours of baseball on Saturday, the Shoreline Community College Baseball Team dropped two tough games at Shagit Valley College on Saturday, losing the opener 1-0 in 14 innings and then losing the 2nd game in the bottom of the 9th on a 2 out single to score the winning run from third in a 7-6 loss.

Game 1 - SCC's Henry McAree and Ty Olson from SVC were brillant, as McAree tossed 11 innings of shutout ball and McAree 12 innings in the 1-0 SVC victory in 14 innings. Both pitchers allowed three hits while Olson struckout 7 and allowed 3 walks and MaAree allowed 2 walks and had 6 strikeouts. Aaron Rose (0-4) took the loss for SCC in relief. SCC only had three hits in the game, two were doubles by Luke Merkel and Mitch Hoveke. SCC never had a runner passed 2nd base in the game. Skagit won the game on a single with two outs in the bottom of the 14th.

Game 2 - SCC opened up in the scoring in the top of the first with a single run, Skagit answered back in the bottom of the 3rd with 2 runs. SCC tied it back up in the tpp of the 4th, but Skagit seemed to take control of the game the next two innings by scoring 4 runs to lead 6-2, but SCC rallied for 4 runs in the 8th to tie it up, but SVC got a two out single to win the game again. Aaron Rose (0-5) was again the unlucky reliever to be on the mound for the final SVC rally. Danny Cavanaugh went 2-2 for SCC with 2 RBIs and 1 run scored while Kainoa Ahsing-Kaahanui and Beau Vintertun had 2 RBIs each as well.

SCC drops to 18-18-1 on the season and 6-12 in the NWAACC Northern Region. Skagit Valley improves to 18-15 overall and 9-9 in the region. The two teams play against today. 

SCC playoffs hopes slipped with the swept on Saturday, as they now trail SVC and Douglas College by 3 games with 6 games to go. SCC also trails Bellevue by 2 games, who swept Olympic yesterday and are 8-10 in the region. Douglas split with Everett CC on Saturday. SCC needs a sweep today to get back in the playoff hunt going into the final weekend of play next week.

Game time today for SCC Vs Skagit Valley is 3:00pm at Meridian Park, Shoreline, WA.
