Inglemoor Lone Unbeaten Remaining

The KingCo 4A conference returned to action on Tuesday, with all six games able to avoid the raindrops and get completed. At the end of the day, Inglemoor stood alone as the only unbeaten team left in conference play...
  • Inglemoor 10, Eastlake 0 - Another fast start for Inglemoor, as they scored 5 in the first and 3 more in the second to cruise to a 10-0 five-inning win over Eastlake. Seniors Scott Meyers and Ethan Yeo each drove in 3 runs for the Viks, who are the lone unbeaten team left in the KingCo 4A conference. Obi Taylor pitched four shutout innings before handing the ball over to Brendan Cook to complete the shutout. Reigning Crest Division player of the Week Peter Meuisi continued to swing a hot stick, going 2-for-3 with 2 RBI on the day.
  • Ballard 8, Newport 6 - The Beavers carried an 8-3 lead into the seventh inning and held off a late charge to stun previously unbeaten Newport, 8-6. David Doerr was the hero offensively for Ballard, finishing the day 2-for-3 with 4 RBI. Senior left-hander Charlie Beaudoin picked up the win, striking out 8 and allowing 5 earned in 6 innings of work. Junior Jared Fisher took the loss for the Knights despite striking out nine Beaver hitters in 5 innings pitched. Sophomore Nate Anderson homered and drove in two for Newport, who falls into a first place tie in the Crest Division with Redmond at 5-1.
  • Lake Washington 9, Skyline 1 - Senior Trevor Dunlap tossed five shutout innings and fellow senior Colin Tremblay drove in 3 runs as the Kangs snapped a three-game losing streak with a 9-1 win over Skyline. Dunlap allowed just 4 hits and no walks, striking out 6 in the contest. Junior Nori Shimizu scored three times and sophomore Theo Alexander was 2-4 with 2 RBI for LW, who improved to 3-3 with the win. Skyline drops to 1-4, with Anthony DeMatteo and Nate Litka providing extra base hits in the loss.
  • Garfield 6, Bothell 2 - Senior Frank Pavia homered in a 5-run fifth, as the Bulldogs snapped Bothell's four-game win streak with a 6-2 win over the Cougars. Bothell had 10 hits on the day, including 3 by senior Gene Watson, but could only muster 2 first inning runs. Ian Zapolsky scattered nine hits in 5 innings to pick up the win for Garfield, their first in KingCo play this season.
  • Issaquah 4, Roosevelt 0 - Senior Shane Yarnell tossed a one-hit shutout and added two doubles at the plate to lead the Eagles past Roosevelt, 4-0. Yarnell struck out 5 Roughriders and didn't walk a batter, needing just 76 pitches to get through his seven innings to improve to 4-0 on the season. Ben Rosellini was 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI, as Issaquah snapped a mini two-game slide to improve to 4-2 in league play.
  • Redmond 4, Woodinville 3 - The Mustangs scored three times in the bottom of the sixth inning, fighting back from a 3-1 deficit to top Woodinville, 4-3. Redmond's trio of top-flight juniors carried the load offensively, as Michael Conforto (2-for-3, 2 doubles), Dylan Davis (2-for-2, HR, 2 RBI) and Zach Abbruzza (solo home run) drove in three of the four Redmond runs. Senior Matt Kimmel picked up the win in relief, working an inning and two-thirds of scoreless baseball, striking out each batter he retired (5). Sophomore Spencer Greer took the loss for the Falcons, who got a solo blast from senior Dan McMillan in defeat.
