Whidbey Pony sluggers beat Seattle team

The Whidbey Crabs picked up their sixth straight victory of the season Wednesday evening knocking off a Seattle team 8-4.

Leading 4-2 in the top half of the sixth inning, Seattle tallied two runs only to have the Crabs erupt for four runs in their half to finish the scoring in Mountlake Terrace.

The Crabs pounded out 12 hits in six innings. Leading the hit parade were Connor Antich, Austin Sterba, Will Simms, Trent Piehler and Maxfield Freidman with two hits each. Eight different players crossed the plate providing a balanced attack throughout the lineup.

Trent Piehler pitched three innings and was relieved by Lewis Pope. Simms sealed the game with the final four outs to pick up the win.

The Crabs host the Mountlake Terrace Youth Athletic Association Twins on Saturday at the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation field with a doubleheader beginning at noon.
