ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Tim Clinton
SPORTS EDITOR

Thursday's rain storm took care of two games in one for the Highline Bears semiprofessional baseball team.

Thursday's game in Lacey against the Senators was cancelled as the wet stuff fell, then Friday's home game against the North Sound Emeralds fell victim to a still soggy outfield at Mel Olson Stadium at Steve Cox Memorial Park in White Center.

The Bears were coming off a 13-7 victory over the Senators at Mel Olson on Tuesday night.

They found themselves in a 3-0 hole in the third inning before Sam Trend-Beacom from Australia put them on the scoreboard with an RBI double into the gap in left center field.

The Senators came back with two in the fourth and one in the fifth for a 6-1 advantage, but the Bears came back with five in the bottom of the fifth to tie the score at 6-6. Dillon O'Grady, whose father Pat is a former football coach at Tyee High School, capped off the rally with a home run.

Ten Bears then came to the plate in a five-run sixth that made it 11-6 in their favor, then Trend-Beacom launched a solo home run in the seventh inning for a 12-6 advantage.
