Sequim 10, Kingston 8

SEQUIM — The Bucs were able to take advantage of some miscues and stage a late rally against the Wolves, but fell just short as Sequim ultimately prevailed 10-8 in a league game.

Tyler Bates scored on a wild pitch in the fifth and then Brockton Foss cleared the bases with a three-run double to pull the Bucs within a run.

Kingston also opened the game with a four-run first. Garret Sitting Dog drove in a run with a single and Nickyle Tucker follwed with an RBI-double. Terefa Rutherford also picked up an RBI-single in the first.
