Youth Baseball
Field of Champions Bears 15U Black 11, Rippers Gold 0: In Redmond at Hartman Park last night, the Preston-based Bears rolled over the Redmond-based hosts with the help of several Valley players. Mount Si’s Logan Garwood led the local delegation, going 2-2 with a walk, stolen base, run scored and RBI, and fellow Wildcat Josh Moore went 1-2 with a walk and run scored as well. Cedarcrest’s Nate Hoyer went 0-1, but drove in a run for the Bears.

Rippers 15U Black 11, Bellevue Baseball 0: Next door to Hartman at Redmond High School, the Rippers’ Black 15U squad delivered a blowout win over the Bellevue foe, with Cedarcrest’s Mason Pudwill pitching in; he went 1-2 with a run scored and two RBI’s.

Boys of Summer 15U 4, JBC Prep Sportswear 3: Bellevue-based Boys, without Mount Si’s Turner McCutchan in the lineup last night – he didn’t play – rallied for a walk-off win at Lee Johnson Field in Kirkland. Fellow ‘Cat Jake Mitton went 2-3 with two runs for JBCPS.

Kirkland Merchants 4, Bellevue Dragons 14U Green 3 (9): The Merchants won it on a walk-off in extras last night at Marymoor Park in Redmond. Leading the BDG Valley delegation was Chris Jarocki, who doubled as part of a 2-3 effort, scoring a run and driving in a second. He also pitched two innings of relief for the Dragons, and allowed a run on one hit, walking one and striking out three. He received no decision. Fellow Valleyite Hayden Weaver also had a double for BDG.

Boys of Summer 1, Northwest Naturals 16U 0: Bellevue-based BoS won the pitcher’s duel at Island Crest Park. Mount Si’s Cam Ferreri went 1-2 with one of three NWN hits on the game. Fellow Wildcat Jack Mardon went 0-2.

City Baseball Green 8, Seattle Gladiators 16U 2: The Gladiators could not take advantage of 10 walks issued to their hitters by CBG pitching in the loss last night in Seattle. Seven of those walks went to four Mount Si players in the SG lineup – ‘Cats Mason Gronewald, Tom Phillips, Austin Oberg and Jack Dougherty walked a combined seven times and scored a run despite going 0-5. Phillips also pitched an inning, walking one but having nothing else of note. He received no decision.

Kirkland Merchants 10, Washington A’s 18U Gold 6: Recent Mount Si grad Will Scott homered for the A’s, but the Kirkland side scored six runs in the fifth to take command and hold on for the win over the Sammamish team at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland. Scott finished 1-4 with that solo shot.

College Summer: Valleyite assumes top spot in saves in his league
For the second straight night, North Bend’s Isaac Mullins got the call to lock down another win for his Cowlitz Black Bears, and he delivered.

Mullins worked an inning of relief, allowing a hit and walking one, but striking out one for his West Coast League-leading fourth save of the summer, as Cowlitz held on for an 11-inning 6-5 win last night over the Port Angeles Lefties up in Port Angeles.

Mullins, a 2015 Mount Si High School grad pitching at Washington State University, sports a 1.50 earned run average through six games, and Cowlitz, with last night’s win, moves above .500 to 6-5 on the season.


Marenco pitches in for Wenatchee: North Bend’s Mason Marenco went 1-2 for the Wenatchee AppleSox last night as they blanked the Corvallis Knights 4-0 in WCL action down at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR.

Marenco, who just finished a redshirt season as a freshman at Gonzaga University, is hitting .421 on the season for the Sox, who made it to .500 on the season (3-3) with the win. He is a 2017 Mount Si HS grad.

Redmond blown out at home: In Pacific International League action at Hartman Park in Redmond, the host Dudes fell 11-1 to the Seattle Cheney Studs. Two Valleyites played in the game for Redmond. Mount Si High School grad Jake Brady, who just finished his freshman season at the University of Puget Sound and lives in Snoqualmie, went 0-2, and Skyline High School grad Riley Gill, whose family now also lives in Snoqualmie, went 0-4. Gill just finished his freshman season redshirting at the University of San Francisco.
