CHS baseball falls again, plus the morning diamond cuts……

Time for a round of some diamond cuts. We’ll hit the baseball diamond first and it continues to be a struggle out of the gate for Cedarcrest High School’s baseball team, as for the third straight game they were on the short end of a blowout loss.

Sedro-Woolley came into Duvall yesterday and went right to work, scoring seven runs in the first two innings then cruised from there, handing the Red Wolves the 13-1 defeat. Kian Pegueros-Warren went 2-3 with an RBI for Cedarcrest, and Chris Busch and Cole Linder both had hits as well for the Red Wolves, but it has been a rough start for sure. We hate to bring this stat up because there’s some great kids on that team up there, but in this 0-3 stretch to start the season, the Red Wolves have been outscored 30-3. Not territory that coach Scott Goldsberry and this Cedarcrest program are very used to, that’s for sure.

Cedarcrest is home against Nathan Hale on Monday afternoon at 4:00.

Time now for the rest of our baseball scores. High school action – including Cedarcrest’s coverage – is powered by Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on the Apple IPhone and IPad in their app store.

Kingco 3A: Eastside Catholic 5, Juanita 3 – The Metro League’s Crusaders took this one under the lights last night at home on the Plateau beating the Kingco’s Rebels. Art Schoenstadt homered for EC and drove in two runs while Nico Carrigan went 2-3 with a double and run scored. Tyce Petersen went 2-3 leading Juanita.

Wesco/Kingco 3A: Edmonds-Woodway 7, Bellevue 6 – Read Carr took one for the team in a big way last night, as he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, scoring Tom Blahous with the game-winning run as the Warriors held off a Wolverine comeback attempt. Bellevue scored a pair of runs in both the fifth and sixth innings to tie the game after having trailed 6-2 after four frames. Ian Michael went 2-3 with a double, run scored and two RBI’s for Ed-Wood while Connor Cirillo went 2-3 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI for Bellevue.

Kingco/Wesco 4A: Eastlake 4, Monroe 1 – Jack Titus homered and drove in two runs to power the Kingco’s Wolves to a home win over the Wesco’s Bearcats on the Sammamish Plateau under the lights last night. Dalton Chandler went 2-3 with an RBI pacing Eastlake while Andrew Haight had a hit and RBI for Monroe. Pitcher Elston Miller won the game in relief for the Wolves, pitching 3 2/3 perfect innings and striking out six. Matt Thompson recorded the final out in the seventh to pick up the save for Eastlake.

Wesco 3A: Lynnwood 8, Bishop Blanchet 7 – Carson Speegle completed a dramatic five-run LHS comeback in the bottom of the seventh to give Lynnwood the win at home in Snohomish County in the most dramatic fashion possible – scoring on a wild pitch from third base. Josh Latimer homered for the Royals and drove in three runs as part of a 3-3 performance, while Conner Combs also had three hits, scored twice and drove in two runs.

North Sound: Nooksack Valley 16, Sultan 3 – As a service to you Cedarcrest fans, we’re also going to feature select games from the North Sound Conference featuring some of the Red Wolves’ former Cascade Conference rivals, and this one didn’t go well at all for the Turks yesterday at home, despite a 2-3 effort from Lawson Coy. Trey Eshuis went 3-4 with a double, three runs scored and four RBI’s for Nooksack, who took a 5-0 lead after two and poured it on late, scoring the other 11 runs in the final two innings.

College: Gonzaga 4, BYU 2 (11) – GU broke a 2-2 tie with a pair of runs in the 11th to score a West Coast Conference victory on the road in Provo, UT, over the Cougars. Senior Carson Breshears, from North Bend and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, went 0-2 but walked twice and scored a run for the Bulldogs. Fellow Valleyite Mason Marenco, a freshman also from North Bend, did not play for GU as he is out injured. He is expected back soon.
