Crest Plays Monday, Crown Washed Out

Weather played havoc with the Crown Division schedule, postponing two games and leaving a third suspended on Monday. The Crest Division was unaffected however, and saw a new leader emerge following Monday's play.

Crest Division

  • Issaquah 11, Eastlake 1 - The Eagles scored five runs in each of the first two innings en route to an 11-1 5-inning win over Eastlake. Shane Yarnell kept his record unblemished, improving to 6-0 in KingCo play and helping Issaquah claim sole possession of first place at 10-3. The senior right hander scattered five hits while striking out 5, allowing just a single run in the fourth inning. Yarnell continued to swing the bat well too, collecting 2 hits and 2 RBI. Spencer Rogers continued his amazing season, finishing the afternoon 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI. Connor Hanson drove in the lone run for the Wolves, who lost their ninth straight.
  • Skyline 3, Newport 1 - Senior Peyton Harrod made a triumphant return to the Spartan rotation, pitching a complete game in Skyline's 3-1 win over Newport. The start was the first of the season for Harrod, who missed much of the season with an arm injury. He was brilliant on this afternoon, allowing just a run on 3 hits while striking out 5. He was aided offensively by junior Nate Litka, who was 2-for-3 with a home run and 2 runs scored. Trase Tam Sing hit a solo home run for the Knights lone tally. With the loss, Newport fell one game behind Issaquah in the Crest Division.
  • Garfield 11, Redmond 8 - The Bulldogs jumped out to an 8-3 lead after four innings and held on, topping Redmond in a slugfest, 11-8. Senior shortstop Jack Jajewski had a huge game, going 3-for-4 with a double, triple and six RBI. Sophomore John Trupin picked up the win and also chipped in with 2 hits and 3 runs scored at the plate. Redmond's juniors Michael Conforto and Dylan Davis each homered in the loss, which left the 'Stangs a game behind Issaquah for the division lead.
Crown Division
  • Lake Washington 8, Roosevelt 8 (suspended, top 8th) - In a game played through steady rain and mud, the Roughriders scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh to force extra innings before the umpires stopped the contest. The game will resume on Thursday at 3:45, with the Kangs having runners on first and third with no outs in the top of the 8th inning.
