Lane records a first in pro baseball career, plus the diamond cuts on this Sunday……

Good Sunday morning.

We have plenty from the diamond this morning.

First, we have news on a big accomplishment for Mount Si High School grad Trevor Lane in the pros.

Lane recorded his first professional save yesterday, pitching for the New York Yankees-affiliated “East” minor-league baseball team in their Gulf Coast League “Rookie” class game. Lane allowed only one hit, and struck out two, to get that save, as the Yankees held off the Pittsburgh Pirates’ rookies 3-2 in a rain-shortened seven-inning game in Bradenton, FL.

Lane, a 2012 MSHS alum, was drafted by New York in last month’s Major League Baseball amateur draft. He was selected in the 10th round out of the University of Illinois-Chicago, and made his professional debut last weekend with the Yankees East team.

Good stuff for sure. Now to the scores from yesterday:

Boys of Summer 15U 7, Seattle Dodgers 0: At the Lee Johnson Invite in Seattle, Mount Si High School’s Trace Halvorson delivered, with a hit and two RBI’s as the Bellevue-based BoS blanked the Seattle team.

Kirkland Merchants 10, Washington A’s 16U 0: At the LJI in Kent, the Sammamish-based A’s were held to three hits by the Kirkland team in the loss; MSHS’ Ethan “Moose” Read and Jake Ayers were both 0-2 for the A’s in the contest.

Northwest Naturals 15U Navy 7, FCA 6: At the Xtreme World Series in San Diego, the Sammamish-based Nats rallied from two runs down to win on a walk-off in dramatic fashion in the bottom of the seventh, with MSHS’ Trevor Aman and Blake Meister both contributing; Meister was 1-2 with an RBI while Aman was 1-3. Aman also pitched four innings for NWN, allowing four runs on seven hits, walking four; he received no decision.

Sacramento Speed Elite 5, Seattle Select 15U Black 4: Also in San Diego, the Seattle team came up short against the California squad; MSHS’ Will Caro was 1-4 with an RBI aiding the Seattle team.

Boys of Summer 15U 11, FM Sports 0: Also in Seattle at the LJI, BoS shut out the Redmond team, with Halvorson driving in a run despite going 0-4.

Northwest Bandits 4, Washington A’s 16U 2: Also in Kent at the LJI, Read was 0-2 with a walk as the A’s were doubled up by the Kirkland-based Bandits.

Baden Baseball 14, Eastside Baseball 5: In Bellevue, 2015 Cedarcrest High School grad Andrew Willmon shined for Seattle-based Baden in their win at Courter Field in Bellevue; the pitcher, a sophomore-to-be this fall at Columbia Basin College in the Tri-Cities, pitched a complete game, allowing the five runs, only one of which was earned, on three hits, striking out two.

California Nemesis 4, Northwest Batbusters 18U Wilson 0: The Portland team’s run at the USSSA Far West World Series came to an end yesterday with the shutout loss to the Los Angeles-area squad. Valleyites Heather Hinton and Colleen Campbell saw action for the NWBW, with Campbell, from Snoqualmie and a Forest Ridge School student, allowing two runs, one earned, on one hit in two innings of work in the circle, walking two and striking out two, with no decision. Hinton, from North Bend and a Mount Si High School senior-to-be, was 0-1 with a walk.
