On the diamond this Friday….

Baseball diamond notes on this Friday:

– Mount Si High School graduates found themselves on both sides of the baseball diamond yesterday on the campus of Washington State University, as the Washington A’s U18 select team met Eastside rival Boys of Summer Blue in a contest at the Palouse Summer Series event. The A’s won 6-3. Connor Swift (0-3) and Austin Hall (0-2, run, BB) participated for the A’s, while Joey Cotto (2-3, run) and Zach Usselman (0-2) competed for the BoS Blue. All four are members of MSHS’ Class of 2013.

In another game at the Palouse event with a Valley player involved, the Seattle Stars downed Pullman 16-5. Cedarcrest High grad Nick Gagner pitched 1 1/3 shutout innings, striking out one to aid the Stars. The game was held in Lewiston, ID.

-In Reno, Chaffey Baseball downed Boise (ID) 10-0. MSHS senior-to-be Carson Breshears went 1-3 with a run. The big story was on the mound, though, as Chaffey pitchers Max Karnos and Jake Roes combined to toss a no-hitter. Congrats to those two and their teammates.

-In Portland, Rock Creek downed the Crimson Cannons 8-3. MSHS grad Connor Jensen went 1-2 with a run scored and two more driven in to aid RC.

-In Spokane, Michael’s Toyota scored a win to open a tournament at Whitworth University. Former Mount Si catcher Joe Done had a pair of hits to aid Michael’s.

-In Kirkland, it was a tough night for the SVLL nine and ten-year old All Star team, as they fell to Bellevue West 8-2 in the District 9 tournament. SVLL drops into the loser-out bracket. They play again tomorrow against the winner of tonight’s Falls-Issaquah game.
