Shimchick’s bases-clearing double propels Mount Si baseball to season-ending win, ending long losing streak, and other baseball news…
A bases-loaded double in the sixth by Miles Shimchick helped Mount Si High School’s baseball team rebound from a 1-0 deficit, and they held on to close the season on a strong note, breaking their long 17-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over the Skyline Spartans at Skyline High School in Sammamish.
Shimchick’s big hit scored Colin Brown, Cody Perrine and Paul Theda, all of whom had reached base during the course of the inning. Shimchick finished 2-3 with those three RBI’s to lead the Wildcats, who also had a strong 3-4 effort from Mason Marenco with a run scored. Reid Lutz also doubled and drove in a run in the seventh off that hit, that run being Marenco’s.
Gavin Gorrell went the distance, allowing one unearned run on six hits, striking out five, to get the win for the Wildcats. The Shimchick hit came off Skyline reliever Kyle Gruber, and he was charged with the loss, allowing the three runs, all earned, on three hits, striking out one. Nathan Ishii went 2-2 to lead the Spartans.
