UW quarterback Jake Locker played his final baseball game for the Bellingham Bells today and probably couldn't have asked for a better ending to his brief summer diversion.
Locker keyed a three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth that lifted the Bells to a 4-3 win, hitting a one-out double that put runners on second and third --- the other runner was cousin Brady Locker, in as a pinch-runner. Both then scored on a single that tied the game with two outs, and the winning run came home on a bases-loaded walk.
Locker went 3-4 in the game with a double --- his first since opening night --- and a stolen base.
Locker played 10 games for the Bells, starting nine, going 9-33 (.273) with one homer, two doubles, six runs scored and three runs batted in. He was also 4-5 on stolen bases and played only in center field defensively.
The Bells announced last week that Locker would not play any baseball games past this weekend to rest up for the beginning of UW's football camp Aug. 4.
The Bells are 12-15 in the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League.
