  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:22PM

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:22PM

SEATTLE – Once again, the Bainbridge Island fastpitch team was faced with a win or go home situation – and once again they came through when the chips were down. After dropping both games of a doubleheader against Holy Names and Eastside Catholic on Friday, the Spartans took advantage of eight errors and 11 walks to defeat the Nathan Hale Raiders 13-1 in the seventh/eighth place game in the Metro League tournament Monday. With the win, Bainbridge moves on to the Sea-King District 2 tournament as the seventh and final team out of the Metro League. “I told them to leave everything on the field and they did just that,” coach Liz McCloskey said. “These girls are unbelievable.

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:22PM

Matt Frazee’s three-run blast sealed the 7-5 win over Eastside Catholic. SEATTLE – Sitting in the dugout after the game, Matt Frazee could still recall the at-bat pitch by pitch. That’s because it led to one of the biggest hits of his prep career. “I remember, strike one I fouled it (fastball) off, then it was a fastball low and out (and another) fastball low and out, (both of which) were balls,” he said. “Then he came with a changeup up and in. It was a watermelon.”

Hard work pays off for Schager, Sciacca

  • Jun 9, 2008 at 8:21PM

When practice wasn’t enough, they started their own workouts. Jordan Schager and Ranger Sciacca weren’t the greatest players back in the day. When they first tried out for the Spartan baseball team, they didn’t dazzle with natural ability and head straight to varsity. Instead, they got better by working hard over the summers, practicing on Saturdays for years to get where they are at – on the starting rotation that has become one of the strengths of a team that contended for the Mountain Division title this season. Their progress made head coach Jayson Gore take notice. “When we first saw them, they were a couple of kids that you wouldn’t look at twice,” Gore said. “But by their hard work, they’ve turned themselves into ballplayers.”
