Mustangs Cruise to State Tourney

Redmond 10, Marysville-Pilchuck 0 - Senior Zach Abbruzza tossed six shutout innings and classmate Dylan Davis doubled twice and homered as the Mustangs cruised past Marysville-Pilchuck 10-0. The win secures a berth in the 4A state tournament for Redmond, who joins Bothell and Newport as the other KingCo 4A teams to qualify. Abbruzza allowed just three hits and struck out eight in a dominant pitching performance. Junior Peter Hendron also enjoyed a big day, going 3-for-4 with a home run and 4 RBI. Redmond will open the tournament on Saturday against Olympia at Heidelberg Park in Tacoma.

On Tuesday, Lake Washington will get their shot at advancing to the 3A state tournament as they host Bishop Blanchet at Bannerwood. Game time is 7:00 PM.
