Lyncs chase Falcons from playoffs / Baseball

Lynden Christian took advantage of its opportunities and defeated the South Whidbey High School baseball team 5-2 in a loser-out district tournament game Saturday, May 12, at Sehome High School.

Lynden Christian lost 2-1 to Meridian later that afternoon in the game for third and fourth places.

“The kids played OK,” South Whidbey coach Tom Fallon said after the loss to LC. “(It) seemed like every walk or mistake we made (they) capitalized on.”

The Falcons allowed only three hits, but of the four batters walked, three came around to score. The Lyncs (14-10) scored another run when a batter reached on an error and moved around on wild pitches and passed balls.

Meanwhile, South Whidbey struggled at the plate.

“Tough to get much going with only two hits,” Fallon said.

Alex Black stroked a double and Brent Batchelor singled for the two SW hits.

South Whidbey threatened in the final inning, scoring a run and leaving the bases loaded.

The young Falcons, who will return eight starters next year, finished with a 10-13 record.
