The Redmond baseball team bounced back from its first loss of the season with impressive back-to-back wins last week.

The Mustangs were upset, 5-3, by Garfield on April 2, but a day later trounced Franklin, 13-2, in a 4A Kingco matchup at Hartman Park.

Then on Saturday, Matt Burrows scattered five hits over six innings as the Mustangs beat rival Eastlake, 7-2.

Senior third baseman Justin Kopak led the offense against the Wolves with three runs-batted-in (RBI) and senior teammate Landon Morris was 2-for-2. Morris also had two hits in the win against Franklin.

Senior Tim Wilson had a monster day at the plate against Franklin, going 4-for-4, including a triple and a two-run home run.

Redmond improved to 9-1 and played at Bothell on Monday after the Reporter’s deadline. The Mustangs take on Ballard April 9 at Hartman Park.

Inglemoor scored three runs each in the third and fourth innings and then held off a late Lake Washington rally to pull out an 8-5 win in a 4A Kingco baseball contest at Inglemoor Saturday afternoon.

Blake Lively and Joey Semler each had two hits for the Kangaroos, who beat Woodinville, 4-3, at Lee Johnson Field last Wednesday.

LW (6-4) played Roosevelt at Lower Woodland on Monday after the Reporter’s deadline. The Kangaroos play at Franklin on Friday before next Monday’s showdown with Redmond at Hartman Field.
