Bellevue Dragons Elite 16U 4, Northwest Naturals 15U 0: Dragon pitcher James Boone pitched a gem, firing a four-hitter and striking out 11 for the Bellevue team as they blanked the Sammamish-based Naturals at Hartman Park in Redmond last night. Mount Si High School’s Anthony Gilden went 0-1 with two walks for the Dragons.

Rippers Baseball 16U 7, FM Sports 16U 5: Across the street from Hartman at Redmond High School saw a mini-Valley Cup of sorts as the Rippers held off their Redmond rivals from FM under the lights.

Northwest Naturals 14U 7, Washington A’s Purple 5: A battle between Sammamish rivals went to the Naturals at Eastlake High School in Sammamish last night. You Mount Si fans are going to start hearing the name Parker Norah a lot more as this summer rolls on. He is the brother of the Wildcats’ budding football star Cole Norah, plays for the Nats, and will be a freshman this fall at MSHS. Last night, Parker went 0-1 but had two walks aiding NWN. A second player with local ties, current MSHS freshman Josh Freudenberg, also plays for the Nats, and he pitched three innings, allowing four runs, three earned, on eight hits, walking two and striking out four with no decision recorded.

Boys of Summer 12, Field of Champions 16U Bears 1: It wasn’t a good night at all last night for Preston-based FoC, or their trio of Mount Si players, last night as Bellevue-based Boys ran away with this one at Skyline High School in Sammamish. Lucas Costello and Kevin Corder went a combined 0-6 with a strikeout for the Bears and Tyler Clem pitched two innings for FoC, allowing three runs, two earned, on three hits, striking out one and receiving no decision.

College Summer Baseball
Yakima Valley doubles up Victoria: A couple of days of rest for the Yakima Valley Pippins proved to be useful, as they posted a 4-2 West Coast League win last night at home over the visiting Victoria HarbourCats. Skyline HS grad Riley Gill, whose family now lives in Snoqualmie, went 0-3 for YVP. He played at Bellevue College this spring.

Minor League Baseball
North Bend’s Lane picks up where he left off: Back at “AA” minor-league ball after an emergency trip to help the New York Yankees’ “advanced A” team down in Tampa last Friday night, North Bend’s Trevor Lane got back to work and delivered another strong relief outing last night on the mound.

The 2012 Mount Si HS grad struck out two of the three hitters he faced in his lone inning of work, dropping his ERA down to 1.59 with the “AA” Trenton Thunder as the Yankees-affiliated squad posted a 7-2 win over the New York Mets’ affiliated Binghamton Rumble Ponies in upstate New York. Lane, a left-handed pitcher, is in his fourth season of pro ball after the Yankees drafted him in 2016. He is the most recent Valley player to be drafted in the big league baseball June draft.
