Crown Division

Bothell's middle infield combo of Matt Marriott and Kurt Stottlemyer combined to go 4-for-6, with Marriott chipping in a double and a triple and Stottlemyer stealing three bases. Tom Nielson was 2-for-3 with two stolen bases in the loss for Roosevelt.
  • Inglemoor @ Lake Washington, ppd. - The game between the Vikings and Kangs was rained out due to poor field conditions at Lee Johnson Field. The game will be made up on Monday at 5:00 pm.
