Smith does it all for Mount Si “C”‘s in win, plus the morning baseball cuts……

We’ll have our preview of Cedarcrest High School’s baseball playoff game coming up but first, news from high school baseball last night and it was a big night for the Mount Si “C” team as they brought the bats out in a big way against Redmond.

Jake Smith tripled as part of a two-hit effort, scoring two runs and driving in three more, and he also delivered on the hill, firing a two-hitter as the Wildcats blanked the Mustangs 11-0. Smith struck out five.

Mount Si got out of the gate strong in the first. After Brady Hossfeld led it off with a single, Beck Hoffman doubled and that brought up Smith, and he wasted no time, hitting that aforementioned triple to score his two teammates. He then scored later on a Redmond error on a ground ball hit by Drew Hiddleson. Luke Richter then singled to score Aidan Dougherty, who walked to reach base following Smith’s triple. Hiddleson then scored on a passed ball to complete the six-run first inning onslaught, and from there, the Wildcats cruised.

Michael Kimborowicz and Aaron Beltran had the two hits for the Mustangs.

Mount Si hosts Eastlake tomorrow to finish out the season at home. The game is at 4:00 p.m. at Si View Park in North Bend.

Wesco 4A Playoff: Mount Vernon 1, Glacier Peak 0 (winner to districts)– The first of three mini-games to determine the final two Wesco playoff entrants into the Wes-King tournament later this week went to the Bulldogs. MV pitcher Reilly Olmstead allowed two hits in the three-inning contest, and Erik McGehee drove in the lone run with a hit for Mount Vernon. Drew Brown and Payton Smith each had a hit for Glacier.

Wesco 4A Playoff: Mount Vernon 3, Kamiak 0 (winner fourth to Wes-King tournament) – Olmstead came back out and pitched another three innings of two-hit ball to lift the Bulldogs, who will host Kingco #5 Bothell on Thursday at home. Cole Williams doubled and scored two runs for Mount Vernon, while Bryce Cote had one of the Kamiak hits.

Wesco 4A Playoff: Kamiak 1, Glacier Peak 0 (winner fifth to Wes-King tournament, loser out) – Kamiak hurler Alec Hanshaw allowed just three hits in his three innings of work enabling the Knights to advance as the Wesco fifth seed and they’ll be in Issaquah on Thursday meeting the fourth-seed Kingco Eagles. Smith had another hit for the Grizzlies, who had two shots to make it but could not take advantage and now see their season end, probably for them a bit too soon. The season ends at 4-8 Wesco, 9-13 overall including these two mini-game losses.

Kingco 3A: Interlake 11, Juanita 7 – The Saints took care of the Rebels in a slugfest at Peter Kirk Park in downtown Kirkland. Xavier Bellay and Charlie Galanti led Interlake, each with two hits, two runs scored and two RBI’s. Zane Dewar and Josh Emanuals also had two hits each for the Saints, with both scoring a run and driving in another apiece. Ryan Trautmann had two hits, a run scored and RBI to lead JHS.

Kingco 3A: Mercer Island 7, Bellevue 5 – Jack Varney’s homer lifted the Islanders over the Wolverines in Bellevue. He drove in three runs for Mercer, who also had two hits – including a double – and RBI from Will Mulfur. Connor Cirillo doubled as part of a two-hit effort leading Bellevue, also scoring a run and driving in a second. Cameron Kato, too, had two hits for the Wolverines, with a run scored and RBI.

Wesco 3A: Meadowdale 2, Shorewood 0 – Mason Vaughn’s two-RBI reach on an error in the fourth was the difference in this one, as Meadowdale pitchers Casey Toter and Cutter Buchea combined on a three-hitter in the Mavs’ blanking of the T-Birds on the road in Shoreline. Toter worked six innings allowing the three hits, didn’t walk anyone but also didn’t strike out anyone. He got the win. Buchea walked one and struck out one in an otherwise clean seventh to get the save for Meadowdale.

Wesco 3A: Lynnwood 13, Edmonds-Woodway 7 – The middle of the Lynnwood batting order – Nick Holmes, Gabe Newson and Danny Smith – went a combined 7-12, each with a double, scored six runs and drove in eight more for the Royals as they beat the Warriors in a slugfest at home in Lynnwood. Carson Speegle and Conner Combs also had two hits apiece, each scoring a run pacing Lynnwood. Thomas Blahous went 3-4 with a run scored and RBI pacing Ed-Wood.

Wesco 3A: Marysville-Pilchuck 11, Oak Harbor 2 – Jordan Justice led Pilchuck, going 2-4 with a double, walk four runs scored and three RBI’s as the Tomahawks cruised to the road win on Whidbey Island over the Wildcats. Cole Brammer went 3-4 with three RBI’s pacing M-P, while Austin Boesch led Oak Harbor, going 3-4 with a run scored and RBI.

Wesco 3A: Arlington 15, Marysville-Getchell 0 – Cole Cramer doubled twice in going 3-3, scoring two runs and driving in six more for the Eagles as they made the short trip down SR 9 and rolled over the Chargers in Marysvile.
