Way earns 6th save for Bellingham in West Coast action

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Jul 25, 2015

After experiencing his first rough outing of the season, Brian Way of Sitka jumped right back in harm’s way and came away unscathed. 

The 20-year-old relief pitcher tossed a perfect ninth inning and collected his sixth save as the Bellingham Bells beat Victoria 2-0 in West Coast League action.

Way lowered his ERA to 1.42 over 15 appearances.

The 6-foot-7, 270-pound right hander was coming off his worst performance of the season against the same Victoria team. He gave up three runs in 1.1 innings of work.

It was only the second time in 15 games that gave up a run.

Way, of Sitka High fame, has a 4-0 record with 20 strikeouts in 20 innings.
