Skyline hands both Mount Si varsity, JV baseball losses, plus our high school scores on this Wednesday…..

Good Wednesday morning. Soccer and softball on deck, but we first start with baseball on this Wednesday.

In a battle of two of the top teams in Kingco 4A last night at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue, the visiting Skyline Spartans scored a pair of runs each in the fifth and sixth innings, rallying from a 2-1 deficit to hand Mount Si’s baseball team their first conference loss of the season, by the final score of 5-2.

Riley Gill was 2-3 with a double and run scored pacing Skyline, who also had two hits, a run scored and two RBI’s from Will Simpson.

Skyline opened the scoring with a run in the first, then Mount Si tied it in the second. Spencer Marenco’s single scored Owen Roche. Marenco finished the game 2-2 with that RBI leading the Wildcats, who then scored a run in the fourth to take the temporary lead. And that run came in dramatic fashion, as Marenco and Ben Keller successfully pulled off a double steal, with Keller stealing home on the play. Along with that run, he had two doubles.

However, Keller was charged with an error on what turned out to be the deciding play of the game in favor of Skyline, and that happened in the fifth. A single by Cole Hinkleman scored Simpson, and that crucial miscue by Keller allowed a second run, Bryce Smith, to also score, and that gave Sparty a 3-2 lead. Skyline, as noted previously, scored two more runs in the sixth and sealed things up.

Gavin Gorrell allowed three runs, two earned, on five hits in five solid innings of work on the mound for Mount Si, and took the loss. He walked two and struck out three. Jack Rooney pitched six strong innings for the Spartans, allowing two runs, one earned, on nine hits, walking three and striking out five. Simpson earned the save with a scoreless seventh, allowing a hit and walk but nothing else.

Mount Si hosts Issaquah Friday at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue. Game time is 7:00 p.m.

Skyline big inning sinks Wildcat JV: Skyline scored all five of their runs in the third inning, and they used that onslaught to hold off Mount Si’s junior varsity 5-3 last night at Skyline High School in Sammamish, giving the Wildcats their first loss of the season. Hunter Brazier was 3-3 with a run scored and RBI leading Sparty.

On the mound, Edward Rosemont was solid for Skyline, allowing three runs on eight hits, walking one and striking out nine in 5 1/3 innings of work, getting the win for the Spartans. Ryan Escover pitched a nearly perfect 1 2/3 innings of relief, walking one and striking out another, to get the save for Skyline.

Trace Halvorson was 3-3 with a double and RBI leading Mount Si, while Logan Van Campen was 2-3 with a triple and run scored aiding the Wildcats’ cause.

Mount Si’s JV host Issaquah Friday at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue, with a 4:00 p.m. first pitch, then play two on Saturday morning at Lake Washington against the Kangs. Those games start at 9:00am and should run through most of the day.

Now to our high school scoreboard. Most of our high school scores and stats this morning come from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.
