Thursday afternoon news from the diamond

Thursday afternoon update:

Baseball: Mount Si’s Wutherich aids club team to pair of wins in Boise
Mount Si High School’s Parker Wutherich was a factor today in two wins for his Bellevue-based club team at a tournament in Boise.

Wutherich was 1-3 with a walk and two runs scored for his Michael’s Toyota 16U club as they beat the Boise Gems 10-2, then the Wildcat went 2-4 with a run scored for Michael’s as they won a slugfest over the Boise Senators 14-10 in contests at the Boise American Legion Firecracker Tournament. Michael’s will be at the tournament through the weekend as they play top teams from around the Northwest in this event.

Wutherich, who will be a sophomore this fall at Mount Si, played for the Wildcat “C” team this spring.

Softball: Trout aids club team win at Colorado tourney
Mount Si High School grad Maddy Trout did her part to help her select softball team win a game this morning at the Colorado Fireworks tournament in Denver.

Trout was 1-2 for her Northwest Bullets 18U Knuth team as the Portland-based squad scored all of their runs down the stretch to hold off the Texas Glory Blue, from suburban Dallas, 3-2 in a pool-play game at the national tournament. The Bullets then played the Driven Academy Locos and were blown out 11-3 by the Nebraska-based team with the former Wildcat going 0-3.

Meanwhile, at the companion Colorado Sparkler event this afternoon, the Sammamish-based Northwest Batbusters 16U Brooks fell to the Colorado-based USSSA Pride Lucero 4-1, and as of right now are meeting the Wichita Impact Gold from Kansas. Batbusters Brooks features Mount Si’s Molly Wilbourne and Cedarcrest’s Michaela Carter. We’ll have that result for you first thing tomorrow here at the Journal.

Two other teams with MSHS and CHS players competing in the Denver tournaments – the Seattle Sundodgers 18U (MSHS’ Abby Gronewald and CHS’ Maddie Nixon) and Northwest Batbusters 18U Seek (MSHS’ Lauren Wilbourne and CHS’ Elaine Townley) are both off today awaiting their playoff matchups which start tomorrow.
