Baseball finishes the season in fifth

The Vashon High School Pirate baseball team closed its season on a positive note with a win last Friday against the Life Christian Eagles. Playing in Tacoma, the Pirates put together 11 hits and played error-free ball for the 17-1 victory.

Pirate Ryan Anderson, in his first varsity start, proved to be the star of the game. Anderson went three for three, with three doubles and two steals.

Tyler Bernheisel took the mound and looked sharp for the Pirates. He staked Vashon to a 12-0 lead through three innings.

He was relieved by Matt Amick, who added two solid innings of relief in closing out the mercy-rule-shortened five-inning game.

Amick also went three for five with two doubles.

Rounding out the Pirate heavy hitters was catcher Peter Johnson, who was three for four, also with two doubles.

In their final home game on Monday, April 27, the Pirates lost to the Seattle Christian Warriors. Bernheisel started that game and pitched a scoreless game through the fifth inning before turning the pitching duties over to Chris Pieterick.

Pieterick gave up seven runs in the sixth inning of the 8-6 Pirate loss. Pieterick and Peter Johnson each went three for three from the plate in the game.

The Pirates finished the season at fifth place in the 1A/2B Nisqually League with a 5-7 league record and 6-8 overall.

They have a solid core of experienced underclassmen returning next season.
