Redmond finished an impressive 14-2 in KingCo play to earn the top seed in the Crest Division. Spencer Rogers struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings on the mound for the Eagles, who finished the year at 8-8 and will enter the KingCo tournament as the #4 seed from the Crest Division.
  • Newport 3, Eastlake 2 - Four Newport pitchers combined on a 3-hitter as Newport completed an impressive turnaround with a 3-2 win over the Wolves on Wednesday afternoon. The Knights were 5-7 through 12 KingCo games, but won their final four contests to finish in sole possession of third place at 9-7 in the Crest Division. Trace Tam Sing was 2-for-4 with a double, home run and 2 runs scored in the win, while Eastlake was paced by Nick Andrews (2-for-3, double) and Nick Smith (HR, 2 RBI).
