Two losses tarnish stellar Spartan baseball record

Two consecutive losses at home closed the fourth week of the baseball season for the Bainbridge High varsity squad, marring an otherwise perfect season record (6-2 overall).

The Spartans were left with a conference record of 3-2, tied with Garfield and West Seattle in fourth place in the Metro standings.

First, on Wednesday, March 27, the island squad was bested 8-6 by the visitors from Seattle Prep (3-3 overall). It was their first loss of the year for BHS.

Then, on Friday, March 29, the Spartans were again defeated 7-6 by Eastside Catholic, a 7-1 team tied with O’Dea and Ballard for second place in Metro.

The Spartans were set to play just one game at home the following week — 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, against Roosevelt (4-4 overall) — as the outing slated for Saturday, April 6 against Hazen was canceled. They started out, however, on the road Monday, April 1 against Cleveland (0-7).

The island squad will next play at home at 4 p.m. Monday, April 8 against Lakeside.
