The week in Mount Si baseball
October 2, 2008 · Updated 8:56 PM
Mount Si dropped two games last week at home, but still hopes to make it into postseason play.
Bellevue 5, Mount Si 1
The Bellevue Wolverines avenged an early-season loss to the Mount Si Wildcats with a 5-1 defeat in Kingco 3A boys' baseball action last Wednesday at Mount Si High School. The loss put a crimp in the postseason dreams for Mount Si.
The team's offensive woes continued and coach Gary McGregor blames that for the loss.
"We didn't do very well offensively. We didn't swing the bats very well. We took too many pitches. We didn't make any adjustments at the plate and it cost us," said McGregor.
Alex Smart's single to center field in the third inning which scored Craig Weber was all the Wildcats could muster offensively as the Wolverines mounted a 12-hit attack, which included a solo home run in the second inning. Ian Opsal pitched well, throwing all seven innings, only walking three Wolverines while striking out four.
Weber's two hits led Mount Si at the plate.
The postseason is still reachable according to McGregor.
"We're still right there. We'll probably end up fighting it out with Bellevue," said McGregor.
Skyline 6, Mount Si 2
Last Friday the Wildcats continued their slide, losing their fourth straight conference game after starting the season 6-2. Skyline ace pitcher Brian Foreman, in his first game since coming off suspension, held the Wildcats' bats to only four hits over seven innings. The Wildcats' offensive struggles continued.
