Week 2 in 4A Play

Woodinville 1 @ Eastlake 7 - Eastlake scored in all but two innings on the day, pounding out eight hits to send Woodinville to 0-3 in conference play. Senior Mitch Augenstein had a big day for the Wolves with three hits, two of which were doubles, and two RBI. Sophomore Mark Whitley held the Falcons' bats in check with five strong innings of two hit ball. Junior Liam Herlihy got the start for Woodinville, pitching into the 5th and leaving the game down 4-1. Eastlake would score three more off relievers to even their record at 1-1 in KingCo play.

Roosevelt 4 @ Newport 2 - Both teams put up a pair of runs in the first inning. However, only Roosevelt was able to play add on as the Roughriders scored a run in the 5th and 6th respectively. Roosevelt starter, Max Dwyer, was able to go the distance yielding only a first inning homerun to Newport junior Ethan Paul. For Roosevelt, Lev Klamet and Myles Goveia provided the offensive punch with two hits apiece. Roosevelt runs their record to 2-0 in conference play with Newport dropping to 1-1.

Issaquah 3 @ Skyline 4 - Skyline WSU commit Drew Lunde was sharp on the mound for most of the game, holding Issaquah to two hits in a complete game effort. However, the game almost slipped away as a couple of walks and passed balls led to two Issaquah runs in the 6th. Yet, the Spartans responded with two runs of their own in the bottom half of the 6th to regain the lead. A bases loaded walk and a clutch sacrifice fly from Tanner Laine sealed the deal, bumping Skyline's conference record to 2-0 and dropping Issaquah to 0-2.

Ballard 5 @ Garfield 1 - Ballard starting pitcher, Zach Ehrlich, kept the Bulldog bats quiet in a four hit complete game effort. For Garfield, starter Henry Freed allowed one run in four innings pitched. However, the Garfield bullpen yielded four runs in the 5th and 6th innings. The Beaver bats of Jacob Westerman and Ian Scott did much of the damage, each posting double generating RBI and two hits on the day. Ballard finds itself at 1-1 in KingCo with Garfield dropping to 0-2.

Inglemoor 2 @ Bothell 5 - Inglemoor starter Curtis Bafus faced off against the potent Bothell Cougar offense, holding the Cougars to three earned runs in six innings pitched. Inglemoor errors aided the Bothell attack early as the Cougars capitalized on those errors with timely hits. Senior Cameron Costa had one such hit, netting two RBI, and junior Tyler Wharf chipped in two hits of his own. Bothell starter Ryan Monson was magnificent, shutting out Inglemoor in five innings of work. For the Vikings offensively, Bafus hit a two run homerun in the 6th inning off a Bothell reliever, but it wasn't enough as Inglemoor drops to 1-1 in KingCo. Bothell pushes its record to 3-0, sitting alone in first place in the Crown Division.
