Four Bellingham pitchers held Ridgefield to two hits as the Raptors dropped the finale of a three-game road series 3-2 on Thursday.

Bellingham starter Will Armbruester allowed only a fifth-inning single to Cole Sheehan, striking out six and walking one over six innings.

Ridgefield scored both of its runs in the top of the ninth. Reiss Calvin and Nick Seamons each walked to lead off the inning. Both scored on a two-out single by Sheehan, who was thrown out trying to stretch the hit into a double.

Bellingham took a 2-0 lead in the first. Andrew Valdez laced and RBI triple to right then scored on a sacrifice fly.

Heritage High grad Eastyn Culp pitched two innings of scoreless relief for the Raptors.

Ridgefield had won five straight against the Bells, including a three-game home sweep and the first two of three in Bellingham.
