PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles pitchers Sarah Steinman and Nizhoni Wheeler combined to throw a three-hitter and limited the Kingston Buccaneers to just one run in a 7-1 Olympic League triumph.

Steinman had a no-hitter going through five innings before Kingston reached base on an infield single in the sixth inning.

“[We] started this week right where [we] left off last week, with good hitting, great pitching and errorless defense,” Port Angeles coach Randy Steinman said following Monday’s game.

Carly Gouge continued her scorching streak at the plate, going 4 for 4 with a triple and an RBI.

Gouge is 14 for 15 in her last four games, with two home runs, a triple and eight RBIs.

Haley Gray was 2 for 4 with a double and two RBIs and Cara Cristion was 2 for 3 with two RBIs.

Steinman helped her own cause with an RBI single.

Quilcene 10, Port Townsend 1

QUILCENE — The Rangers won their third straight game over an Olympic League opponent after toppling Port Townsend.

“Our effort today was A-plus,” Quilcene coach Mark Thompson said. “These girls always come to play.”

Sammy Rae led the way for Quilcene, striking out eight Redskins batters and allowing one run on four hits in her seven innings of work on the pitching mound to improve to 7-0 on the season.

Rae also was 3 for 4 at bat with a home run, a double, two RBIs and a three runs scored.

The Rangers Megan Weller went 3 for 4 at the plate with a triple and three runs and Alexis Gray had an RBI double in Quilcene’s three-run fifth inning.

“Our defense was better, but three errors is still too many, and the bottom of our order needs to contribute to the offense more,” Thompson said.

The Rangers host Wishkah Valley on Thursday, while Port Townsend visits North Kitsap today.
