Mount Si baseball falls on road, plus Kingco 4A and college baseball and softball scores

Jackson Dahl and Shaan Kothari both tripled, helping Eastlake hand the Mount Si High School baseball team a loss last night on the road.

The Wolves handed the Wildcats the 4-1 defeat under the lights at Eastlake High School in Sammamish. Dahl finished 2-3 with a run scored and run batted in, and Kothari’s triple was his lone hit, but it drove in two runs. He also scored a run.

The two Eastlake triples were the big hits of the fifth inning, when the Wolves scored three times to take command of the contest. Reid Lutz’ double was the big hit for Mount Si, who was limited to just five hits on the contest by Wolves pitchers Mark Whitley and Alec Gomez. Whitley picked up the win while Gomez was credited with the save.

Issac Mullins took the loss on the mound for Mount Si, allowing just two earned runs of the four he gave up, on five hits in 4 1/3 innings. Alex Adams allowed just one hit in 1 2/3 innings of relief.

The Wildcats host Newport tomorrow. Game time is 4:00 p.m. at Mount Si High School.

Elsewhere in Kingco 4A:

Inglemoor 7, Redmond 4: Six Inglemoor runs in the third proved to be enough in the end as the Vikings held on to defeat the Mustangs at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore. Brendan Ecklebarger was 2-3 with a double, two runs scored and a run batted in to lead Redmond.

And from Kingco 4A softball:

Issaquah 8, Redmond 6: Another home run for Morgan Bevell aided the Eagles to a win at Hartman Park in Redmond. Justi Johnson went 2-4 with a double and two RBI’s to aid the Eagles. Kaija Gibson homered to pace the Mustangs.

Bothell 4, Eastlake 3: Alex Farmer’s sixth-inning single scored Chloe Lium with what turned out to be the game-winning run as the Cougars outlasted the visiting Wolves. Lium tripled and scored twice to pace Bothell, while both Megan Marino and Hanna Tyndall doubled to aid the Cougars. Janell Martin pitched two-hit ball over four innings of relief to get the win for Bothell, while Julie Graf took the loss in the circle for Eastlake despite a complete game; she allowed all four runs, of which just two were earned, on six hits, striking out seven.

College baseball and softball scoreboard
Illinois-Chicago baseball 10, Northern Illinois 0: Junior Trevor Lane, the 2012 Mount Si High School grad, returned to the mound last night and dazzled, firing eight innings of shutout baseball to even his record at 2-2 on the season. Lane, from North Bend, allowed just seven hits and struck out five to lead the Flames to the win. Lane’s earned run average, which had been quite high after struggles in recent outings, was brought down to a more manageable 6.75 with the strong efforts last night.

Cal State Monterey Bay 8, Central Washington softball 1 (game one, doubleheader): Central Washington’s two Valley products, North Bend’s Celine Fowler and Duvall’s Kaliyn Campbell, went a combined 1-6 as the Wildcats fell in the first of two in northern California.

Cal State Monterey Bay 4, Central Washington softball 1 (game two, doubleheader): Both Valleyites had a hit, with the Mount Si High School grad Fowler also stealing a base, and the Cedarcrest HS alum Campbell scoring the Wildcats’ lone run as the host MB team swept the twinbill.

Mary Washington 4, Lynchburg softball 3 (game one, doubleheader): Visiting MW scored the opening game win in a twinbill at Lynchburg; LC’s Lauren Smith, from Snoqualmie and a 2013 MSHS alum, was 0-1 in the contest. She did not play the nightcap, won by Lynchburg 4-2.
