Red Wolves baseball falls on road, Mount Si’s “C”‘s score win, plus the cuts this morning……

Good Wednesday morning. We start with some morning diamond cuts, from baseball.

Cedarcrest High School’s baseball team has seen life be a bit challenging at times this season in the Wesco Conference, and that continued yesterday, as they saw host Shorecrest break out of the gate in a big way, scoring six first-inning runs then cruising from there to hand the Red Wolves a 7-2 loss.

Curt Nelson led Cedarcrest going 1-3 with a run scored, but it was the Scots who did most of the damage, with Ben Lockwood, Gannon Dow and Davis Stallings all having two hits each.

After Shorecrest broke out to the big lead, the Red Wolves made it onto the scoreboard with their two runs both coming in the third. Nelson reached on an error by Shorecrest, then moved all the way to third on a sacrifice bunt by Deuce Knowles. Tyler Gray then reached on a second error in the frame by the Scots, both by their shortstop, and that allowed Nelson to score. The senior then stole second, and then scored on a single by Luke Mallory. From there, Dow and Alex Culver shut down the Cedarcrest bats the rest of the way, with Dow pitching a solid six innings, allowing two unearned runs on four hits, striking out nine while walking two.

Jake Norris took the loss, allowing five runs and walking four while allowing only two hits in just 1/3 of an inning. Nate Hoyer came in to pitch in relief and did okay, allowing two runs on five hits, striking out seven while walking four, in 5 2/3 innings.

The two teams reconvene this afternoon up at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall, with first pitch set for 4:00 p.m.

Mount Si “C” team holds off Issy
Brady Hossfeld had two hits, including a double, and drove in two runs for Mount Si’s “C” team as they scored seven runs in the third and held off a comeback by Issaquah, taking the game over the Eagles 11-8 last night at Si View Park in North Bend.

J.T. DeRouen also had two hits and an RBI, and Beck Hoffman as well had two hits, scoring two runs.

As noted, the Wildcats scored seven runs in the third, and the key hit was a two-RBI double by Chris Jarocki that scored both Ryan Llewellyn and Luke Richter.

Steven Moore led Issy, going 2-4 with a double, two runs scored and four RBI’s. Mount Si is off the rest of the week, with practices tomorrow through Friday at Si View, and a game is tentatively set for Saturday but hasn’t been officially announced yet.

Time for the rest of the scores. Scoreboard and highlights for all our high school coverage from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.
