The SCC Baseball Team plays its best games on Sunday, at Meridian Park, the first game of the doubleheader. For the second week in a row, SCC played a great first game at Meridian Park, beating Douglas College of Vancouver, BC 6-1. SCC dropped the second game, 9-4, after wasting a 3-0 lead going into the 5th inning.

In the opening game, Jason Shaw pitched a great game just like last week when he beat the NWAACC's #1 Ranked Team in Bellevue College, 5-0. This week he held Douglas to 4 hits and only one earned run in 7 innings of work. The SCC offense scored 3 runs in the first and in the second to take a 6-1 lead and the Dolphins never looked back. Matt Sweeny had 2 hits and 2 RBIs to lead the SCC offense, while Jordan Padilla had 2 hits as well and Matt Cottingham scored 2 runs for SCC.

In Game 2, SCC again scored 3 runs in the bottom of the first inning and it held up to the top of fifth, when Douglas exploded for 6 runs. Douglas added single runs in the 6th, 7th and 9th innings to push their total to 9 runs for the game. SCC could only muster a single run in the 6th inning.

Willie Davies took the loss for SCC, but did have 6 strikeouts in 6 innings of work. Matt Sweeny again had 2 hits and 2 RBIs for Shoreline.

SCC goes to 3-26 for the season and 2-16 in the NWAACC Northern Region. Douglas is now 10-10 overall and 8-8 in the region.

Shoreline plays Olympic College next weekend in a four game Northern Region series. OC is 10-18 overall and 1-11 in the region. SCC plays at Olympic on Saturday and returns to Meridian Park on Sunday at 1:00 PM again for a doubleheader.
