Seahawk head coach Policarpio questions a ruling by the home plate umpire during the Sealth game against Blanchet. Sealth lost the game with Blanchet on top 12-2.
Mound miseries for Sealth lead to loss to Blanchet
Everyone has days that they just as soon forget. Today at the SWAC was one of those days. Sealth starting pitcher Jake Eddy would probably like a do-over after giving up ten runs in four innings and called for baulks on three occasions, two of which brought runs home.
Seahawk pitchers were called for baulks four times during the game. The infield umpire was seeing something he didn’t like, but in fairness, he applied his ruling evenly calling Blanchet’s pitcher twice for pulling his foot off the rubber resulting in one of Sealth’s two runs.
Numerous visits to the infield umpire by Sealth head coach Policarpio and Blanchet head coach Monica inquiring as to the reasoning behind his rulings led to a few tense moments in the game.
The faux pas of the Braves didn’t hurt them nearly as much. Scoring in all but one inning Blanchet went on to win the game 12-2 in six innings.
The Seahawks will be tested again on Wednesday when the division leading West Seattle Wildcats come to the SWAC. Game time is 4pm.
