Rippers Baseball 16U 3, Crimson Cannons 1: The Redmond-based Rippers rebounded from an early hole to score the Cam Christian tournament win at Liberty High School in Renton. Carter “Deuce” Knowles led the Rippers’ trio of Cedarcrest Red Wolves, going 1-1. Fellow CHS’er Kian Pegueros-Warren went 0-1 with a walk and RBI and the third Red Wolve, Mason Pudwill, went 0-3. Knowles also got the win on the hill for the Rippers, allowing one hit in two innings of shutout relief and walking one.

Field of Champions Bears 15U Blue 8, Rock Creek 15U 5: Cam Christian action in Enumclaw had a little Valley Cup flavor to it as the Preston-based Bears and their Mount Si delegation posted a win over the Maple Valley-based RC featuring Cedarcrest’s Nate Hoyer. The Wildcat crew on the Bears was led by Beck Hoffman, who went 3-4 a homer short of hitting for the cycle (he hit a single, double and triple) and scored three runs, and Drew Hiddleson, who doubled twice, scored two runs and drove in a third. As for Hoyer, he went 1-4 for Rock Creek with an RBI.

Northwest Naturals 17U 10, Volkswagen of Olympia 0: Also in the Cam Christian tournament but down in Olympia, the Sammamish-based Nats’ pitcher Jacob Burkett tossed a no-hitter and struck out six as the Nats blanked the Olympia-based squad.

Boys of Summer 18U Blue 7, Thurston County Saints American 5 (game one, doubleheader): It was probably a long night late Friday into early yesterday for Boys’ graduated Mount Si duo of Trace Halvorson and Spencer Marenco, but they were back to work on the diamond yesterday, and Halvorson celebrated his graduation from MSHS in style, homering and driving in three as Boys held off the Lacey-based Saints in the first of two at Bellevue High School. Marenco added a hit and run scored to the efforts for BoS.

FSP Baseball 18U 6, Michael’s Toyota 18U 3 (game one, doubleheader): The first of two for these two Bellevue-based squads at Courter Field on the Bellevue College campus went in favor of the Ford Sports squad aided by Mount Si’s Troy Baunsgard, who went 2-3 with a run scored. Fellow Wildcat Parker Wutherich paced Michael’s, going 0-2 but walking once and scoring a run.

Field of Champions 16U Bears 6, Federal Way Knights 0 (game one, doubleheader): Mount Si’s Kevin Corder and Lucas Costello led the way for Preston-based FoC as they took the first of two from the Federal Way team at Bob Albo Field on the Newport High School campus in south Bellevue. Corder went 2-3 with a double and drove in two runs, while Costello also had two hits, stole two bases and scored two runs. Fellow Wildcat Tyler Clem worked two innings on the hill in relief for FoC, allowing three hits and a walk, but striking out one and receiving no decision. He also hit in the contest and went 0-2 with a walk for the Bears.

Juanita Baseball Club 16U 13, ExploSwing Northwest 16U 12: This one was a wild one in downtown Kirkland yesterday as the Kirkland-based JBC rallied with three in the seventh to escape with a walk-off win over Bellevue-based XSN after Juanita opened the game with a 10-0 lead after three. Mount Si’s Turner McCutchan started on the hill for XSN and was greeted rudely by the Juanita bats, allowing seven runs, five earned, on four hits, walking five in just 2 1/3 innings of work and received no decision. Fellow Wildcat Jake Mitton did not play in the game for JBC.

Rippers Baseball 16U 11, Mill Creek Mavericks 1: A seven-run fourth put this one away for the Rippers at Liberty. Knowles went 1-1 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI for the Rippers, while Pegueros-Warren went 0-2 but reached base twice – once on an error and a second time after being hit by a pitch – and scored runs both times. Pudwill rounded it out going 0-2 with a walk.

Northwest Naturals 17U 2, Colts Baseball 1: The Mount Si duo of Mardon and Ferreri went 0-5 with a walk for NWN in this one, but the Nats held off the Colts in a pitcher’s duel down in Olympia to take their final pool game at the Cam Christian tournament.

Boys of Summer 18U Blue 6, Thurston County Saints American 3 (game two, doubleheader): Marenco doubled and scored a run for Boys as they took the nightcap of two and swept the twinbill from the Saints in downtown Bellevue. Halvorson was 0-1 with a walk, sacrifice fly and two RBI’s for BoS.

FSP Baseball 18U 4, Michael’s Toyota 18U 2 (game two, doubleheader): Ford took the nightcap and swept the twinbill from their cross-town Bellevue rivals. Baunsgard went 2-2 with an RBI for FSP while Wutherich went 0-1 with a walk and also pitched two innings of relief for Michael’s, allowing an unearned run on one hit, walking one and receiving no decision.

Federal Way Knights 4, Field of Champions 16U Bears 0 (game two, doubleheader): The Knights took the nightcap at Newport High School and split the twinbill despite getting just two hits in the contest. Corder allowed those two hits in four innings of work on the mound for FoC, giving up all four of the runs and taking the hard-luck loss. Just one of those four runs was earned and he also struck out one and went 1-3 offensively. Costello added two hits for the Bears while Clem went 0-2.

FM Sports 16U 8, Snohomish Sox 7: Redmond-based FM scored three in the seventh to walk it off and stun the visitors from Snohomish. The Mount Si delegation on FM was led by Scott Harris, who went 1-3 with a run scored, and Ryan Harris, who pitched one perfect inning of relief striking out one and got the win.

Kirkland Merchants 8, Washington A’s 15U 6: The Kirkland-based Merchants held off the Sammamish-based A’s in Bellevue. Mount Si’s Matt Wieting went 0-3 for the A’s.

College Summer
Waltz makes summer debut: 2018 Mount Si HS grad Clayton Waltz returned to his old high school home field – Bellevue’s Bannerwood Park – last night to make his college summer league baseball debut, for the newly-formed Cascade Collegiate League’s Seattle Sea Turtles, and it went well. In the nightcap of a twinbill with the Snoqualmie Chinooks, Waltz, who will be a sophomore this fall at the University of Puget Sound, went 1-3 with a walk and run scored as Seattle won 11-5. Snoqualmie took the opener and split the twinbill with Seattle.

The Sea Turtles play two again today at Bannerwood against the Lynnwood Llamas. The CCL as noted is a new league this summer, with eight teams based in Washington and Oregon up and down the I-5 corridor. They’ll be playing games at various fields around the region over the next couple of months. Waltz, from North Bend, is the only Valley player competing in this league.
