Diamond cuts on a wintry Tuesday

Good Tuesday morning. It’s snowing outside folks so be careful out there as you head out this morning. With that said, it’s strange that we have some baseball of all things for you this morning, but we do. A pair of college baseball games took place yesterday featuring local athletes.

We’ll start with the game in Bellevue between Bellevue College and Green River CC, as a Valleyite made his college debut. That would be BC freshman pitcher Jake Simmons, he of North Bend and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad. Simmons worked two scoreless innings of relief for the Bulldogs, striking out one, as Bellevue clobbered Green River 14-1 in the season opener for both teams at Courter Field on the BC campus. Sophomore center fielder Nick Bowersock, a 2015 Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall, made his season debut for GR in the contest as well yesterday, and went 0-3.

The contest was a makeup game from a doubleheader that was rained out over the weekend.

Also this morning:

Snoqualmie’s Johnson aids UNCo to victory: DH Evan Johnson’s double, three walks and four runs scored guided Northern Colorado to an 18-6 blowout win over Montana State-Billings in the finale of the Bears’ home-opening series in Greeley, CO. Johnson, from Snoqualmie and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, finished 1-2 with the aforementioned numbers as UNCo moved to 4-4 on the season. We should by the way note that freshman Gavin Gorrell, from North Bend, is also playing for the Bears this spring but the pitcher has yet to see action. Gorrell is a 2017 Mount Si HS grad.
