North Bend’s Lane gets work in “AA” minor-league baseball, plus news from the college summer ranks on this Friday

Good Friday morning. Big weekend on tap in the Valley with the Festival at Mount Si starting tonight at Si View Park in North Bend. Diamond cuts on this Friday begins with minor league baseball, and another solid performance on the mound for North Bend’s Trevor Lane in “AA”.

The 2012 Mount Si High School grad pitched two strong innings for the New York Yankees-affiliated Trenton Thunder during a home game last night for that New Jersey-based squad against the visiting Altoona Curve of Pennsylvania, who are affiliated with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Lane allowed just one hit and walked one, but struck out two for the Thunder in the contest, improving his “AA” earned run average to 5.73 and his overall season ERA split between Trenton and the Yankees’ “advanced A” team in Tampa, FL, who he has also spent time with this season, to 4.30. He received no decision and the Thunder fell 9-7 in a game that only ended up as close as it did thanks to a furious five-run ninth inning rally by Trenton.

Lane and the Thunder are in action today and you can see their full August schedule on our minor league schedule page linked at top in our menu bar. All of the Trenton games are available via live web broadcast for a fee through MILB.tv, the Minor League Baseball webcast service.

College summer baseball note to wrap it up this morning:

CHS alum Banks hitless in Studs’ NBC World Series loss: Duvall’s Cody Banks went 0-2 for the Pacific International League’s Seattle Cheney Studs as they fell last night 4-3 at the National Baseball Congress’ World Series in Wichita to the Wellington Heat from Kansas. Banks, a 2016 Cedarcrest HS grad, has been a starting infielder this season for the Studs, based in Tacoma. He will be playing this fall as a junior at Bellevue University in Nebraska after a successful two seasons in community college ball at Big Bend CC over in Moses Lake.
