North Bend’s Breshears aids WCL’s Pickles to college summer league win, plus the rest of the baseball on this Thursday……

Good Thursday morning. Our morning round of diamond cuts starts this morning on the college summer circuit.

The West Coast League’s Portland Pickles have started their first season in the league out strong, and they continued that last night with the help of a Valley athlete.

North Bend’s Carson Breshears went 1-2 with a run batted in for Portland as they handled the visiting Yakima Valley Pippins 8-3 last night at Lents Park in southeast Portland.

Breshears, who has finished up his junior season at Gonzaga University in Spokane, has started out strong, hitting .571 through his first couple of games of the season.

Portland hosts YV again tonight. Also last night in the WCL:

Corvallis pounds Wenatchee: Down Highway 99 in Corvallis, OR, at Oregon State University, the host Knights scored six runs in the sixth and easily handed the visiting Wenatchee AppleSox a 12-3 loss under the lights last night. Breshears’ fellow Valley GU teammate Mason Marenco went 1-5 for Wenatchee and is hitting .375 this season for the Sox. Marenco, a 2017 Mount Si alum also from North Bend, just finished his freshman season redshirting for the Bulldogs.

Our youth baseball scoreboard now and it comes from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Chaffey Baseball 18U 3, Michael’s Toyota 0: Cedarcrest High School senior Aaron Davenport will be walking the graduation aisle tomorrow night down at Overlake Christian Church in Redmond but he had some business to attend to last night – firing a two-hitter and striking out 14 for Edmonds-based Chaffey in their shutout of Bellevue-based Michael’s at Skyline High School in Sammamish. Davenport also walked one and went 1-3 offensively pacing Chaffey.

Field of Champions Bears 15U Blue 10, Boys of Summer 15U 0: Preston-based FoC scored seven fifth-inning runs to slam the door on Bellevue-based BoS at Sammamish High School in Bellevue.

Tyler Clem also had a walk despite going 0-2, and Andrew Edson went 0-3. Wildcat Turner McCutchan pitched for Boys and allowed three runs on five hits in 3 2/3 innings of work, walking three and striking out one. He took the loss and also went 0-2.

Boys of Summer 18U Blue 4, Tacoma Tugs 0: Boys pitcher Ben Larson fired a one-hitter and struck out 13 as the Bellevue-based team blanked the opponents from Pierce County at Russell Road Park in Kent. Mount Si’s Spencer Marenco went 0-2 for BoS in the contest.
