The Bellingham Bells’ home opener didn’t go as planned, as the Klamath Falls Gems scored 2 runs in the top of the 9th inning to come away with a 5-4 win Monday night at Joe Martin Stadium.

The Bells got the first run of the ballgame on an RBI groundout from Nate Anderson in the 2nd inning, but the Gems answered right back in the top of the 3rd, using a throwing error by pitcher Zach Johnson to spark a 3 run inning to take a 3-1 lead.

Bellingham’s Danny Miller doubled in 3 more in the 6th to give the Bells a 4-3 lead and things looked good until the 9th, where Klamath Falls plated two on singles by Cody Coleman and Brett Cumberland. Bellingham got a runner to 3rd in the bottom half of the frame but could not score.
