Thursday (4/9) Scores

A full day of interdivisional play that saw the Crest division best the Crown 4 wins to 2...

  • Skyline 3, Woodinville 2 - For the second time in as many games, the first place Spartans downed a Crown division opponent by the score of 3-2, this time prevailing at home over Woodinville. Adrian Sampson continued his mastery of the KingCo 4A conference, allowing two earned runs and striking out 9 in a complete game victory. Brett DeRooy did his best to keep the Falcons in the game, giving up just 3 earned in a complete game himself, picking up 3 strikeouts against no walks. Shawn Ellis was 2-for-3 with a double, triple and scored two of the three Spartan runs, as Skyline improved to 6-1 and sits alone atop the Crest division.
  • Bothell 8, Newport 6 - The Cougars kept pace with Skyline in the battle for KingCo 4A supremacy, scoring in six of their seven offensive innings en route to an 8-6 win over Newport. Jordan Kynaston picked up the win, working the final four innings in relief of starter Evan Hudson. The game was tied at 5 heading into the fifth, with Bothell scoring single runs in each of the final three frames to pull out the victory. Michael Marriott homered and Alex Reynolds drove in two runs for Bothell, while Colin Hering was 1-for-4 with 2 RBI for the Knights. Bothell joins Skyline as the lone teams in the conference with one loss, one game ahead of Lake Washington in the Crown division.
  • Issaquah 3, Ballard 2 - Shane Yarnell bested Nick Palewicz in a matchup of two of the league's best pitchers as the Eagles won their second straight game, 3-2 over the Beavers. Both pitchers went the distance, with the difference being two unearned runs scored by Issaquah. Yarnell allowed six hits, striking out eight, while Palewicz allowed just the one earned run, striking out four. Ballard's right hander also contributed at the plate, finishing the day 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI. Junior outfielder Spencer Rogers single-handedly carried the Eagles' offense, picking up 3 of their four hits and scoring two of their three runs.
  • Redmond 7, Roosevelt 4 - The Mustangs put up 6 runs in the first three frames and held on late for a 7-4 win over Roosevelt. Sophomore Dylan Davis improved to 3-0, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) and striking out 9 over six innings of work before handing the ball over to Mac Acker for the save. Acker also contributed at the plate, doubling and driving in two. Matt Kimmel added three hits and a double of his own for Redmond, who kept pace with Skyline, one game back in the Crest division. Tom Nielson was 2-for-4 for Roosevelt, who saw their record drop to 0-7.
  • Lake Washington 16, Eastlake 5 - The Kangs pounded out 16 hits including home runs by Chris Viltz and Eric Folkers in a 16-5 win over the Wolves. The game was closer than the final score indicates, as LW opened things up with a 6-run top of the seventh, highlighted by Folkers' grand slam. Six different Kangs had two or more hits, including Dan Reynar, who finished the day 3-for-5 with a double and 3 RBI. Right hander Christian Kaiser improved to 2-0 in league play with the win, punching out 9 Wolves in his 5 innings of work. Kelly Rockey was 2-for-3 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI and Nick Smith was 2-for-4 with a double in the loss for Eastlake.
  • Garfield 9, Inglemoor 1 - It was the Sean Gilman show at Bobby Morris Field in Seattle, as the senior left-hander used his arm and his bat to propel the Bulldogs to their first league win, 9-1 over Inglemoor. Gilman went the distance on the mound, surrendering just six hits and one earned run while striking out seven Vikings. At the plate, he finished the day 2-for-3 with a double and 4 RBI. Garfield scored 3 in the first, 1 in the second and 5 in the fourth to put the game away early. Michael Harvey, James Morris-Lent and Peter Summerville had two hits a piece for the 'Dogs, who snapped a six-game losing streak. A.J. Babuata drove in the lone run for Inglemoor, who dropped to 3-4, a game ahead of Ballard for fourth place in the Crown division.
