Monday Washed Out

Rain continues to be a major story in this 2009 baseball season, as to this writer's knowledge, 5 of the 6 games scheduled for Monday were rained out. The lone game completed was an afternoon affair between Redmond and Ballard...
  • Redmond 5, Ballard 2 - Mac Acker allowed just 2 hits and struck out 11 in a complete game victory as the Mustangs used a 3-run sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie and prevail over the Beavers, 5-2. Senior shortstop Brian Grina was 2-for-3 with 2 doubles and an RBI and sophomore Michael Conforto hit a solo home run to pace Redmond, who improved to 6-2 on the season. They now sit 1/2 game behind Skyline in the Crest Division. The loss was the fifth straight for Ballard, who dropped to 2-6 on the year.

Tuesday will undoubtedly feature a number of make-up games. As of the time of this post, the confirmed makeups for today are as follows:

  • Garfield (1-6) at Lake Washington (5-2), 4:00 pm
  • Issaquah (4-3) at Bothell (6-1), 6:00 pm
  • Newport (4-3) at Inglemoor (3-4), 7:00 pm
