North Bend pro baseball star faces minor league baseball’s most recognized player for second time, plus scores from the diamond on this Saturday….

Another round of diamond cuts on this Saturday morning for you and we start in minor league baseball.

North Bend’s Trevor Lane took to the hill for another appearance last night with his minor league squad, the New York Yankees-affiliated Charleston River Dogs. The Dogs fell at home 4-1 to the visiting Columbia (SC) Fireflies in a South Atlantic class “A” league contest in Charleston, SC. Lane worked the ninth inning, allowing a hit but also striking out one. That strikeout was of Tim Tebow, marking the second straight strikeout in as many chances for the 2012 Mount Si High School grad Lane of minor league baseball’s most talked about player; Tebow is a former high-profile college and professional football star who is playing this season with the New York Mets-affiliated Fireflies. Last weekend, Lane, in his first opportunity to pitch to Tebow, also struck him out.

Lane received no decision. With the short inning (he only threw 13 pitches), he may get to pitch again during this weekend set with the Fireflies, but if not, he should get another chance to pitch early next week.

Also on our scoreboard this morning:

College Summer
Alaska Goldpanners 3, Northwest Honkers 1: The Fall City-based Honkers fell to the Goldpanners again last night up in Fairbanks, AK, as their series continues up north. Cedarcrest HS grad Cameron Padron drove in the team’s lone run despite going 0-4 for the Honkers, who are now 9-8 on the season.

Bend Elks 2, Wenatchee AppleSox 1 (10): The host Elks needed an extra frame to decide the pitcher’s duel, winning the West Coast League matchup to close out the series in Bend, OR. 2014 Mount Si High School grad Evan Johnson continued on a tear for Wenatchee; he was 1-3 last night, and the Snoqualmie product has not gone hitless in a game yet this season for the Apple Sox, who played their 15th game of the summer in last night’s contest.

Youth
Scores and stats from our youth games come from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Mount Si grad Collin Anderson started the game on the hill for the A’s, worked three innings and allowed two runs on three hits, walking three and striking out six with no decision.

Bellevue Honda 16U 5, City Baseball Gold 2: MSHS’ Will Caro was 2-4 with two runs for the Bellevue team as they held off their Seattle rivals at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore.
