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.

The rubber match between Bellingham and Kitsap is set for Sunday at the Kitsap Fairgrounds in Bremerton. Coverage will be on our sister station AM 930 KBAI and streaming at 930kbai.com, beginning at 2:35 p.m. with the pregame show and a 3:05 p.m. first pitch.

Saturday’s NHL Playoff Results

FILE - In this file photo taken Sept. 17, 2012, the NHL logo is seen on a goal at a Nashville Predators practice rink in Nashville, Tenn. The NHL eliminated 16 more days from the regular-season schedule Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, and if a deal with the players' association isn't reached soon the whole season could be lost. The league wiped out all games through Dec. 30 in its latest round of cancellations. Negotiations between the league and the players' association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week.
