The midweek diamond cuts……

Time now for our diamond cuts this morning, and it was another rough outing for Cedarcrest High School’s baseball team yesterday, as they were on the short end of their second straight one-sided result to start the season.

After an 8-1 loss to open the season this past Saturday in Redmond, the Red Wolves hopped on the bus for the long trip to Anacortes, and as it turned out, the trip back was a long one, too, after Cedarcrest spotted six first-inning runs to the Seahawks and fell 9-1 to Anacortes at Daniels Field, where the Northwest 2A District playoffs will be held later this spring.

Tyler Gray went 3-4 to lead the Red Wolves while Cody Hulse added a hit and scored a run to pace CHS. Chris Busch was the recipient on the mound of the Anacortes early offensive onslaught; he lasted two innings allowing those six Seahawk runs on five hits, walking two. Hulse and Cole Linder also pitched two innings apiece for the Red Wolves, with Hulse allowing just one hit in his two innings of work.

Cedarcrest will look to right the ship tomorrow in their home opener as they play Sedro-Woolley. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and is at CHS’ baseball field behind the school at 29000 NE 150th St. in Duvall.

The rest of our baseball and softball from the high schools yesterday with all of our coverage this morning as it will be daily this spring powered by Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhone and IPad.
