The Shoreline Community College Baseball Team won its first region road game of the year, 6-1 over Olympic College in Game 2 yesterday,, but could have had a sweep, as the Dolphins led 3-1 in the bottom of 7th of the first game (7 inning game), but could not stop a OC rally and dropped the game, 4-3.
In Game 2, SCC fell behind 1-0 after the first inning, but SCC scored 2 runs in the 3rd and 4th innings and added single runs in the 8th and 9th for insurance in the 6-1 victory. SCC was outhit in the game, 10 to 9, but made their hits count more.
Layton Bush was the winning pitcher, throwing a complete game for the Dolphins, allowing 1 run (unearned) and striking out 5 in the game while leaving 10 baserunners stranded. Christian Estabillo had 2 hits for Shoreline, to include a double while scoring a run and having 1 RBI. Luis Delmar also had 2 hits for SCC and Matt Cottingham had a double.

Ryan Garrett was the hard luck pitcher for SCC allowing only 2 earned runs in 6.1 innings, striking out 8 and being dominant until that ill fated 7th inning.
