Saturday baseball scoreboard

Good Saturday morning. A full deck of softball on tap, but we have baseball this morning. Mount Si was off yesterday, but saw some results negatively impact what are quickly sinking postseason hopes. Scores and stats from our high school games from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

High Schoool
Kingco 4A: Newport 2, Issaquah 0 – The Knights took home a share of the regular season Kingco 4A crown at home in Bellevue as they scored both of their runs in the first then rode the arm of ace Eric Shinjo to the win. Shinjo pitched 6 1/3 shutout innings, allowing eight hits and walking six while striking out three. A Riley Harper RBI triple sparked that two-run first, scoring Garrett Gants. Lukas Motta also had a hit and RBI for the Knights. Conner Chan went 3-3 leading the Eagles, and Justin Buckner went the distance in the loss, allowing two runs on three hits, striking out six on the mound for Issy.

Kingco 4A: Skyline 3, Eastlake 2 (9) – Josh Winchester won it for Skyline in round two of the Plateau series in Sammamish on a walk-off in the bottom of the ninth, hitting a sacrifice fly to score Brandon Chriest with the game winner lifting the Spartans into the playoffs with the win. The Wolves now play for their playoff lives against Mount Si Monday, with the winner likely to go to the playoffs. Alex Brenner and Drew Tenczar both went 2-4 with an RBI each leading Sparty, while Elston Miller went 2-4 with a run scored for Eastlake.

Kingco 4A: Bothell 7, Woodinville 3 – The Cougars scored twice in both the sixth and seventh innings to break a 3-3 tie and roll to the win last night under the lights in Woodinville. Jacob Peoples, Brody Ponti and Cameron Ley all had a hit and RBI apiece for the Blue Train, while Tyler Owens led Woody, going 2-3 with a double, run scored and RBI. Tom Zimet also had a hit and drove in two runs for the Falcons.

Kingco 4A: Inglemoor 10, North Creek 3 – The Vikings inched closer to a possible playoff berth with the blowout win at home over the struggling Jaguars.

Teddy Bishop also had two hits, including a double, driving in a run. John Tveit led North Creek, going 2-3.

Cascade: South Whidbey 14, King’s 0 – Ethan Perry fired a no-hitter for Whidbey, striking out six, as the Falcons won at home in Langley in five innings by mercy rule. Brent Batchelor went 2-2 with a double pacing the SW offense, with a walk, scoring three runs and driving in three more.

Kingco 3A: Liberty 10, Sammamish 1 – The Patriots won handily over the woeful Totems at home in Renton and the margin of win could have been enough for them to leapfrog Cedarcrest and host a likely first-round matchup between the two teams at the Northwest 2A District tournament; we’ll see later this morning when the RPI’s are announced. Jacob Thoresen homered as part of a 4-4 effort leading Liberty, scoring two runs and driving in five. Kai Alberghini came a homer short of the cycle, going 3-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Gunner Styer led Sammamish, with a double and RBI.

Kingco 3A: Interlake 3, Redmond 2 – Charlie Galanti walked off for Interlake in the seventh, hitting a double to score Dalton Brock with the winning run as the Saints stunned the Mustangs at home in Bellevue. Galanti finished 3-5 pacing Interlake, driving in two runs, and Adam Jacques homered as well for the Saints, also driving in two. Spencer Uyematsu led Redmond, going 4-4 with a run scored.

Kingco 3A: Mercer Island 5, Lake Washington 2 – Under the lights on Mercer Island, the Islanders scored four runs in the second and cruised to the win over the Kangs.

Nation Wood doubled twice as part of a 3-3 effort, and scored a run.

Brock Wilfong went 3-3 to lead Stanwood, and Daniel Evoy added two hits and a run scored to the Spartan cause.

Wesco: Everett 2, Shorecrest 1 – The ‘Gulls won the pitcher’s duel at Memorial Stadium in Everett. Aaron Robertson went the distance and pitched a gem for Everett, allowing one unearned run on nine hits, walking one and striking out five. Gabe Maggio went 2-2 with an RBI while Abe Affholter also went 2-2, but with a run scored, both for the ‘Gulls. Miles Iverson and Brad Officer both went 2-3 pacing Shorecrest.

Wesco: Arlington 9, Mountlake Terrace 3 – Chase Lindsay and Trevor Kazen both went 3-4, each with a run scored and RBI, as the Eagles handled the Hawks at home in Arlington.

College
Washington 15, Washington State 2: The Valley’s Issac Mullins got the call for the Cougars last night in front of the national TV cameras in Seattle, and he got rocked, allowing seven runs on 11 hits as the Huskies won the opener of the Apple Cup weekend set in Seattle. Mullins, a sophomore from North Bend, walked one and struck out one in three innings, and the 2015 MSHS grad dropped to 0-5 on the season with the loss. The game was broadcast nationally on the Pac-12 Network.

Loyola Marymount 6, Gonzaga 2: The Lions handled the Bulldogs last night in the first of a weekend set in Spokane. Junior Carson Breshears, also of North Bend and a 2014 MSHS’er, went 0-2 with a putout and assist each defensively playing second base for GU. His average, with his 0-2, dropped to .223 on the spring, so he’s struggling a bit as the season winds down.

Northwest Nazarene 6, Concordia-PDX 5 (8 inn., game two, doubleheader): NNU broke a 5-5 tie plating a run in the eighth off Duvall’s Andrew Willmon; the Concordia junior reliever, a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad, allowed that one run on just one hit, walking one and striking out two to drop to 1-3 on the season. He did not pitch in the opener, also won by NNU to give them a sweep of the twinbill in Portland.

Northern Colorado 11, Chicago State 7: UNCo applied early, constant pressure on the hosts from the Windy City, getting things done early in their win. Senior Evan Johnson, he of Snoqualmie and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, was 0-2 for the Bears.

Northwest Nazarene 6, Concordia-PDX 4 (Thu., game two, doubleheader): Willmon also pitched the nightcap of Thursday’s opening double-dip for the Cavs in Portland against the Nighthawks, allowing an unearned run on two hits with a walk and strikeout in an inning of work. He received no decision and did not pitch the opener of this doubleheader either, won by Concordia to give them a split of this twinbill.

Minor League
Lane dominant for Tampa once again, but Tarpons fall: North Bend’s Trevor Lane delivered another solid outing in relief for the New York Yankees’ affiliated class “advanced A” minor leage team in Florida last night, but Tampa fell 10-4 to visiting Charlotte, the Tampa Bay Rays-affiliated squad that had on its roster last season Lane’s 2012 Mount Si classmate Reece Karalus. Lane allowed one hit and struck out three in 1 1/3 innings, dropping his ERA to 2.25 on the season. As for Karalus, he didn’t pitch yesterday for his “AA” team, the Montgomery Biscuits, but they won over in-state rival Mobile 3-2 in a rare Friday day game in the Alabama state capital. Look for the North Bender to pitch at some point this weekend as looks to improve his chances for promotion to the “AAA” ranks before the season ends.
