Opening Day, Part II

A couple of games were played yesterday that were postponed on the real KingCo 4A opening day...

  • Lake Washington 3, Ballard 1 - Good ol' fashioned pitcher's duel to start the season between Ballard senior Jimmy Pugel and Lake Washington senior Tyler Staudacher. The Kangs got RBIs from seniors Christian Kaiser and Alex Ross in a 2-run fourth to break a 1-1 tie and pick up the opening day win. Senior Eric Folkers homered for LW and senior Blake Lively struck out the final six hitters of the game for the save. For Ballard, Connor McClure had two hits and a stolen base, while Pugel struck out 5 Kangs in his five innings of work. [ Box Score ]

  • Woodinville 14, Roosevelt 4 - Woodinville used a six-run first inning to run away from the Roughriders in their opener. Senior Shawn Murphy had three hits and drove in five while junior Dan McMillan chipped in with three hits of his own for the Falcons, who host Bothell in a matchup of 1-0 teams tonight at 7:00 pm. [ Box Score ]

Tonight's hot ticket games are the aforementioned Bothell-Woodinville clash as well as a battle of two KingCo 3A teams from a year ago when Skyline travels to Newport. Rounding out the schedule:

  • Ballard @ Inglemoor, 7:00 pm
  • Lake Washington @ Roosevelt, 3:45
  • Redmond @ Garfield, 3:45
  • Eastlake @ Issaquah, 3:45
