Thursday afternoon diamond cuts……

The weekend youth tournament action is already underway on the baseball and softball diamonds, with our coverage coming from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store. We lead with the girls, and finish with the boys.

Elite Diamonds 16U Eaton 4, Lady Hustle 2: The Redmond-based Diamonds softball ladies opened play this morning at the American Softball Association’s Champions Cup event down in Irvine, CA, with a win over the northern California team. Cedarcrest’s Kenzie Brown went 0-3 for the Diamonds in this one. Brown did not play in the team’s second game of the day, which just went final in southern California, an 11-5 win over a team, Pu’uwai, from Hawaii.

Spokane Expos 14, JBC Prep Sportswear 15U 7: The Kirkland-based JBC baseball team opened their weekend tournament in Spokane this morning falling to the host Spokane-area squad. Former Mount Si player Jake Mitton went 0-1 for JBCPS in this one.

Washington A’s 18U Elite 7, Seattle Bombers 1: The opener of this weekend’s second annual Randy Gifford Summer Showdown baseball tournament, named in memory of late local coach Randy Gifford, went well for the Sammamish-based A’s, who posted the win over the Kenmore-based Bombers. Ex-Mount Si’er Connor Baxter paced the victors, going 1-3 with two runs scored.

Michael’s Toyota 16U 15, North Idaho Black Sox 6: Bellevue-based Michael’s kicked off their weekend at the Palouse Summer Series baseball tournament in Pullman this afternoon with a win, paced by Mount Si’s Parker Wutherich, who went 1-3 with a walk and two runs scored.
