The Lakeside Recovery Senior Legion baseball club went 3-2 in round robin play at the 2009 Brandy Pugh Memorial Classic.
Lakeside lost its final game 11-7 against Red Lion; a big six-run inning for Red Lion in the fourth proved to be the difference as Lakeside couldn’t close the gap after a 9-3 deficit, despite scoring a run every inning except the second.
Issaquah’s Shane Yarnell took the loss for Lakeside, pitching three innings and allowing three runs. Sean Penberthy went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs batted in.
Chaffey Baseball won its fifth Brandy Pugh title, defeating Red Lion 9-3.
Lakeside plays Thursday at Husky Ballpark against Chaffey Baseball in preparation for the Senior Legion Super Regional, which kicks off July 18 at Newport.
