The Kitsap Blue Jackets held off Bellingham’s furious 9th inning rally, holding on to defeat the Bells, 10-8, on a soggy Saturday at the Kitsap Fairgrounds in Bremerton.

Trailing 10-5 entering the top of the 9th, Bellingham managed to score three runs to cut the deficit to 10-8.

The Bells later had the tying runners on second and third base but Jimmy Sinatro struck out to end the game.

Bellingham (5-3) starter Gabe Cramer was chased after 3 innings, allowing three runs on three hits, walking one and striking out two. The Bells relief effort didn’t fare much better, giving up seven runs over 5 innings, allowing nine hits, walking two and striking out seven.

Dylan Garcia supplied the power for the Bells, hitting a two-run shot in the 6th inning. Garcia finished 1-3 with a walk, two RBIs, and one run scored. Danny Miller and Walker Olis each finished 3-5 with two runs scored. Olis also had two RBIs for Bellingham.
