From the diamond and the pitch on this Wednesday

Good Thursday morning. We start with minor league baseball this morning.

North Bend’s Reece Karalus pitched 1 2/3 innings of relief, allowing a hit while striking out two, for the Tampa Bay Rays-affiliated Charlotte Stone Crabs as they fell at home to the visiting Clearwater Threshers, a Philadelphia Phillies affiliate, 3-2, in Port Charlotte, FL, in the back end of a doubleheader between the two teams last night in action from the class “advanced A” Florida State League. The Stone Crabs took the opener of the twinbill and are now 67-63 on the season. Karalus, a 2012 Mount Si HS grad, saw his earned run average improve to 3.40 on the season with the efforts last night.

Also this morning:

Soccer: CHS grad makes Linfield women’s debut
Sophomore Sydney Kuehn this offseason changed college addresses, transferring from NCAA Division II Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho to NCAA D-III Linfield College in Oregon, and this past week, Kuehn made her debut with the Wildcats on the women’s soccer pitch.

The Duvall product, a 2016 Cedarcrest High School grad, saw action for Linfield last Thursday in their 2-0 exhibition win over the NAIA’s Northwest Christian University at home in McMinnville, OR. Kuehn recorded no stats of note in the contest for the Wildcats, who play again on Friday, at Northwest University in Kirkland against the Eagles. Linfield will open the season playing NAIA foes in their first four games before their league opener on September 16.

Kuehn is not the only CHS’er playing soccer for Linfield this season. Returning as a senior with their men’s team is Austin Bebee, also from Duvall. We’ll be sure to keep an eye on both players for you throughout the fall here at the SVSJ.
