Mount Si’s baseball team falls for fifth straight time, this time in heartbreaking fashion

Daelan Mahoney doubled in the bottom of the seventh to score Parker Narlock with the game-winning run, breaking a 1-1 tie and helping Redmond hand Mount Si High School’s baseball team its fifth-straight loss, this one in a heartbreaking 2-1 result at Redmond’s Hartman Park.

Harrison Danna went 2-3 with a double and RBI; his single in the sixth, with the Wildcats trailing 1-0, scored this week’s SVSJ Athlete of the Week Justin Lutz to tie the game at 1-1. But with two on and two out in the bottom of the seventh, against starting pitcher Isaac Mullins, Mahoney, who had come into the at-bat without a hit in the contest, ripped that double to give the Mustangs the win.

Mullins allowed both runs, one earned, striking out eight, in a complete game loss for the Wildcats, while Matt Pardi got the win in relief for Redmond, with 1 1/3 innings of three-hit ball; he did not allow a run and struck out two Mount Si hitters.

The Wildcats meet Inglemoor tomorrow at 4:00 at Mount Si High School in Snoqualmie.
