The week in Mount Si baseball
By Rhett Workman
The Mount Si Wildcats baseball team, unlike its counterparts in softball and soccer, did not get spring break off. The team was scheduled to play three games last week, but the rain and poor field conditions only allowed them to get one game in.
Bellevue 12, Mount Si 2
In a game that lasted only five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule, the Bellevue Wolverines scored early and scored often against Mount Si, ending in a 12-2 rout. The game was played last Monday at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue. Nick Harpel pitched all five innings and took the loss, giving up runs in every inning.
There were a couple of Wildcats that made some noise, though. Bryce Kaestner had two hits, one of which was a double, and he had both runs batted in. Jeremy Bess added a double of his own, and Alex Smart added a single and he scored one of the two Wildcat runs in the game.
Interlake, Mount Si
After both teams had arrived for their regularly scheduled game on Wednesday, the umpires called it due to poor weather and field conditions. It was raining and the field looked unplayable. The teams rescheduled for Tuesday.
Mount Si, Issaquah
Like the Interlake game from Wednesday, this game Friday at Issaquah, too, was postponed due to rain - the only game in the conference to be called off because of weather. This game will be made up next Thursday at Issaquah, as the Indians look to avenge their 8-5 loss to the Wildcats in Snoqualmie April 2.
