Falcons trip Wolves 8-3 / Baseball

The South Whidbey High School baseball team built an early 7-0 lead and then held on to defeat visiting Coupeville 8-3 Wednesday, April 10.

The Falcons (10-1, 13-1) and Coupeville (0-8, 0-12) wrap up their three-game series at 4 p.m. Friday on the Wolves’ diamond.

South Whidbey wasted little time getting on the board, scoring twice in the first inning. Alex Black led off with a walk, Drew Fry singled and then Kody Newman smacked a double.

Black also got things started when the Falcons scored five runs in the third. The junior outfielder ripped a triple, then with one out, Newman, Brent Batchelor and Nick Young all walked. Jon Bartel singled and then an error finished the scoring.

In the sixth, Fry doubled and Batchelor singled for the Falcons’ final run.

Fry went 2-for-4 with a double and single, Batchelor singled twice, Black tripled, Ashton Leland doubled, Newman doubled, and Luke Rookstool singled.

Batchelor earned the win, pitching five innings, giving up four hits and six walks while fanning six.
