Mount Si “C” baseball finishes with a flourish against Inglemoor, plus the Sunday diamond cuts

Good Sunday morning. Lot on deck including the Pasco Invitational track and field meet for you, but first, our Sunday baseball diamond cuts.

Mount Si High School’s “C” freshman baseball team poured it on late yesterday, rolling to a big win over the Inglemoor “C” squad.

The Wildcats scored all of their runs over the final three innings in the 14-0 rout.

Cole Norah led Mount Si, going 3-4 with a double, two runs scored and five RBI’s, and pitchers Turner McCutchan and Tyler Clem did the rest, pitching a combined seven-hit shutout. McCutchan allowed six of the hits in five innings of work on the hill for the Wildcats, striking out five. He also doubled, drove a run in and scored another.

Ethan Oxford and Evan Suarez led Inglemoor, both going 2-3.

Mount Si is at Skyline Tuesday for a 4:00 game at Pacific Cascade Middle School, then is home to meet Bellevue Thursday. Game time for that is also at 4:00, but at Si View Park in North Bend.

More high school action now, with all of our coverage from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Kingco 3A: Juanita 4, Capital 3 – The Rebels won it on a walkoff in the fifth in what we think was a rain-shortened result in Kirkland. Kyle Taylor went 3-3 with a run scored and RBI pacing the Rebels.

Kingco 3A: Lake Washington 23, Sammamish 3 – L-Dub scored 19 runs in the first two innings to cruise to the road win at Sammamish High School over the Totems. Nation Wood hit a grand slam as part of a 2-2 effort for the Kangs, scoring two runs and driving in five. Travis Lee added a hit, walk, two runs and three RBI’s pacing LW.

College baseball
Seattle U. 13, Alcorn State 8: SU won a slugfest with Alcorn in Bellevue; sophomore catcher Blaine Wagner, from Duvall and a 2016 Cedarcrest High School alum, recorded three defensive putouts in a late-inning stint behind the dish for the Redhawks.

Linfield 6, Whitman 3 (game one, doubleheader): The Wildcats doubled up the Blues in the first of two down in McMinnville, OR. Sophomore Collin Anderson, from North Bend and a 2016 Mount Si HS alum, pitched 1 1/3 innings for Whitman, not allowing a hit or run. He received no decision. Linfield won the nightcap of the twinbill to sweep the pair. The two teams wrap up the regular season this afternoon with Whitman fighting for the final playoff spot into the NCAA Division III Northwest Conference tournament. They are tied with George Fox at 12-11 in conference for that fourth and final slot. A win today regardless of George Fox’s result with Puget Sound should get the Blues that last slot based on a head-to-head sweep with the Bruins this season. We’ll keep you posted.

Minnesota-Morris 6, Crown (MN) 5 (last Thu., game one, doubleheader): Morris took the first of two on neutral soil outside of Minneapolis last week. Sophomore Levi Knott, from Duvall and a 2016 Cedarcrest HS grad, was 1-3 with a walk and run scored playing right field for Crown in the game.

Big Bend 10, Treasure Valley 2 (game one, doubleheader): BBCC rolled over TVCC in the first of two down in Ontario, OR. Sophomore Cody Banks, he of Duvall and a 2016 CHS’er, was 2-6 with two runs scored and an RBU for Big Bend.

Yakima Valley 8, Spokane 0 (game one, doubleheader): Yakima rolled to the game one win in the Lilac City. Freshman Justin “JuJu” Lutz, from Fall City and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, was 0-3 for CCS.

Gonzaga 5, Pacific-CA 2: GU exploded for all of their runs late as they rallied to tie their weekend set in Stockton, CA, with the Tigers at a game apiece. The rubber match is today. Junior Carson Breshears, he of North Bend and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, was 1-4 for GU in the contest. He played second base and recorded a putout and two assists defensively.

Northern Colorado 5, Sacramento State 2: Up I-5 in Sacramento, UNCo scored a pair of runs in the ninth to break open a close one and score a road win over the Hornets. Senior Evan Johnson, from Snoqualmie and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, was 1-5 with a run scored in the contest for the Bears.

Western Oregon 6, Concordia-PDX 5: The Wolves escaped with the win over their arch-rival Cavs from Portland last night in a game that was played with WOU as the home team on Concordia’s home field due to weather. Junior Andrew Willmon, from Duvall and a 2015 CHS’er, worked 3 2/3 innings of the contest on the mound for Concordia, allowing two runs on two hits, walking three, striking out five and receiving no decision.

Minnesota-Morris 14, Crown (MN) 2 (last Thu., game two, doubleheader): Knott went 3-4 with a run to lead Crown, but Morris scored nine of their runs in the first two innings to score the nightcap win and doubleheader sweep, dropping Crown to 3-10 on the season.

Big Bend 13, Treasure Valley 7 (game two, doubleheader): Banks was 2-5 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI’s for Big Bend as they finished two in eastern Oregon with the nightcap win and twinbill sweep.

Spokane 3, Yakima Valley 1 (game two, doubleheader): Lutz went 1-4 for Spokane as the Sasquatch won the nightcap and split the pair with the visiting Yaks.

Pro baseball
Lane off to strong start: Another good outing for North Bend’s Trevor Lane Friday night has him potentially on a path to another mid-season promotion just like was the case in 2017. The 2012 Mount Si High School grad pitched two innings of relief for the New York Yankees-affiliated Tampa Tarpons in their 4-0 Florida State League class “advanced A” minor league shutout win over the Minnesota Twins-affiliated Fort Myers Miracle down in Fort Myers, FL. Lane allowed two hits, struck out one and earned his second “hold” of the season as his ERA dropped to a solid 1.69 through his first three outings of the spring.
