CHIMACUM — Port Townsend opened the baseball season with a 5-1 nonleague win over rival Chimacum.

The Redskins pounded out 11 hits, including two each from Jacob King, Sean Dwyer, Matt Cain, James Delagarza and Joe Hoffman.

Tuesday's game was scoreless until Port Townsend plated a run in the third inning. The Redskins added another in the fifth and scored three in the top of the seventh.

Chimacum avoided being shutout when Yoshiki Ishiuchi scored in the bottom of the ninth.

The Cowboys managed only three hits in the game, one apiece from Drew Yackulik, Lane Dotson and Henry Lovcamp.

Dotson recorded the team's only extra-base hit with a triple.

“I thought we pitched pretty well,” Chimacum coach Jim Dunn said.

“Defensively, I thought we played pretty well.”

The game was originally scheduled to take place at Memorial Field in Port Townsend, but due to the weekend's rain was moved to Chimacum High School.

Port Townsend plays at Sequim in its Olympic League opener today in another game that was relocated from Memorial Field.

Chimacum begins Nisqually League play on the road against Bellevue Christian on Thursday.
