South Whidbey blanked by Burlington / 10-12 baseball

Unable to generate any offense, the South Whidbey Major Little League baseball team lost 4-0 to Burlington Thursday, July 11, in the semifinals of the District 11 tournament at Oak Harbor’s Windjammer Park.

To get another shot at Burlington, South Whidbey needs to defeat rival Central Whidbey in an elimination game at 6 p.m. Friday, July 12.

South Whidbey opened the district tournament by blanking Central Whidbey 6-0 Monday.

If South Whidbey tops Central Whidbey, it will advance to face Burlington at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 13. Since Burlington is unbeaten, South Whidbey will need to top Burlington twice to claim the district title. The second game, if necessary, is 2 p.m. Sunday.

Burlington 4, South Whidbey 0

South Whidbey’s pitching has been dominate in the tournament. The staff allowed only one hit in the first two games and put together a decent performance against Burlington.

Two walks and an error set up a two-out, three-run double for Burlington in the second inning. Burlington added its fourth run in the fifth inning on two hits and a walk.

South Whidbey’s offense, which produced 17 runs in the first two games, couldn’t break through against a trio of Burlington pitchers.

Burlington’s 6-foot, 3-inch starter Tyler Walker tossed the first three innings, striking out seven and allowing only one hit, a first-inning single by Grady Davis.

That would be South Whidbey’s only hit of the game, and only once did a South Whidbey runner reach second base.

Sage Northrup and Karen Parsell each collected walks for South Whidbey, which had only four base runners in the game.
