Whidbey Crabs sluggers claim quick win

The Whidbey Crabs won a rain-shortened game against the Terrace Twins 14-2 to stay undefeated at 3-0.

The game was stopped in the sixth inning on Wednesday with the Crabs batting. If a team has a 10-run advantage after the fourth inning, a game may be called by the umpires.

The Pony League baseball squad started the game by hitting through the lineup. Peter Jacobs led off with a home run, which was followed by Connor Antich’s triple, Ricky Muzzy’s single and Kohl Hunter’s double to right field. Terrace’s pitching struggled to put away Whidbey’s batters and allowed 20 base hits. Leading the parade was Hunter with four hits, Josiah Sergeant and Houston Schmutz each had three, Muzzy, Jacobs and Jordan Henriot added two hits apiece.

Schmutz pitched the opening two innings and was relieved by Jacobs and Hayden Brymer.

The Whidbey Crabs return to play April 11 in Mountlake Terrace to face the Bothell team. Whidbey’s next home game is a doubleheader at noon April 15 at the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation field at Community Park against the North Seattle team.
