PREP BASEBALL: PA beats Bainbridge second day in a row

Guttormsen, Martin combine for a 3-hitter

BAINBRIDGE — The Port Angeles baseball team remained tied for first place in the Olympic League by beating Bainbridge for the second time in two days thanks to a three-hitter from pitchers Brian Guttormsen and Brayden Martin.

Bainbridge came in to Monday’s home-and-home series against the Roughriders 9-1 in league play. The Riders beat the Spartans 5-4 on Monday at Volunteer Field and then again 3-1 on Tuesday in Bainbridge. In the two victories, Port Angeles pitching allowed a total of eight hits.

After the pair of victories, Port Angeles is now tied with North Kitsap for first in the league with both teams at 10-2.

The Riders also got big contributions from Alex Angevine, Kaleb Mullen, Jordan Shumway and Ezra Townsend.

Guttormsen started the game, going four innings and allowing three hits and no earned runs while striking out three. Martin came in to pitch in the fifth inning, going three innings, allowing no hits and striking out four.

On Monday, Port Angeles had to come from behind to win in the later innings. It was the opposite Tuesday as the Riders got two runs in the first inning after Alex Angevine hit a leadoff single. He moved around to third base and Mullen drove him in with an RBI bunt single. Townsend then hit a double for the second straight at-bat as he belted a double in the seventh inning Monday to drive in a second run.

Bainbridge led off the bottom of the first inning with a double, but Shumway threw out the Spartans’ baserunner at third base trying to stretch it to a triple.

With a two-run lead, the Riders held it the rest of the game. Shumway also hit a double and scored a run on an error in the sixth inning to give the Riders an insurance run. Angevine finished with three stolen bases and Townsend finished 2-for-3.

Port Angeles (10-2, 14-4) will likely have to sweep a home-and-home series against a solid Kingston team (6-6, 9-7) to earn a share of the Olympic League title. North Kitsap’s (10-2, 13-4) final two games this weekend are against winless Bremerton (0-12). Port Angeles hosts Kingston at 6:15 p.m. Friday at either Civic Field or Volunteer Field, then play the Bucs in Kingston on Monday.
