SEASIDE — The Seaside baseball team lost its first two games of the annual Spring Break Tournament at Broadway Field, but bounced back Sunday to defeat Corbett, 5-0.

A late rally came up short for the Gulls in Friday’s first round game, as Fort Vancouver escaped with a 6-5 win.

McKay posted a 14-1 win over Seaside in a Saturday afternoon contest.

In Friday’s loss to Fort Vancouver, Seaside scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh before the final out was recorded.

The Gulls out-hit the Trappers, 8-6, but Fort Vancouver’s Nick Laurenza was 3-for-3 with a double and scored twice. Teammate Tyler Runkle was 0-2, but scored four runs, while Zeke Block and Joe Endonino drove in two runs apiece for Fort Vancouver, which led 5-2 after six innings.

In Saturday’s late three-inning exhibition against Cascade, Seaside scored four runs in the second inning for all the runs it would need.

The Cougars were playing their third game of the day, after games earlier vs. Ilwaco and Knappa at CMH Field.

Seaside pitcher Travis Fenton gave up three hits over three innings, striking out four.

Dylan Meyer and Payton Westerholm had multiple hits for the Gulls.

In Sunday’s win over the Cardinals, the Gulls built a 4-0 lead through three innings, then added one in the sixth.

Gage McFadden went the distance on the mound for Seaside, allowing just three hits on 63 pitches, with five strikeouts and one walk.

Duncan Thompson and Brayden Johnson had two hits apiece for the Gulls.
