Errors and a leadoff walk in the eighth inning took their toll as the Wolverines fell 7-6 at Nooksack Valley April 3.
With the score tied 6-6, the Pioneers’ Jon Shrine uncorked a double down the left field line that drove in teammate Trevon Myhre, who led off the eighth inning with a walk and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt.
Coach Rich Warin said his team sabotaged a sturdy offensive performance by committing four errors in the field.
“We gave it away,” Warin said.
Alex Jangard led Friday Harbor (3-3) at the plate with three base hits. Shawn Cutting had a pair of base hits and Sasha Moghadam and Roy Taylor each had a double.
The Pioneers scored twice in the sixth to erase a Wolverine lead and reclaim the advantage. Friday Harbor tied the score with a run in its next at-bat and then sent the game into extra innings by shutting down Nooksack Valley in the seventh inning.
