5-2 Playoff Loss Ends Mustangs Season

By Mustang News 05/07/2019, 10:00am PDT

In a playoff showdown between two KingCo 4A rivals, Eastlake landed blows early and then hung on to beat Redmond 5-2 on Thursday.

The loss ended the Mustangs season and their march toward a berth in the state championship tournament for the first time since 2012.

Duncan Warriner again proved to be a workhorse for Redmond. After missing all of last season with an injury, the Mustang starter pitched his fourth complete game of the year, giving up five runs on eight hits while striking out three.

Yui Suzuki and Colin Curry, Redmond’s most consistent hitters, continued to set the table for the rest of the offense. Suzuki was 3 for 4 with a double and Curry went 2 for 3 with an RBI triple.

After the Wolves put up two runs on three hits in the bottom of the first, Redmond answered back with a run in second and another the third to tie the score at 2-2.

But two base hits in the bottom of the third followed by two straight deep sacrifice flies plated two more runs for Eastlake. The Wolves added another run on a sacrifice in the fifth to make it 5-2.

Redmond had its chances, leaving the bases loaded in the second and runners on second and third in the fifth.

The Mustangs finished the season 9-10 in KingCo and 11-10 overall. They’ll look to a core of underclassmen to step up and replace Seniors at key positions including both middle infield spots, center field, and left field. 

Tryouts for the 2020 season are a little more than nine months away. Go Stangs!

Seniors Shine as Redmond Beats Newport 2-1

By Mustang News 04/30/2019, 1:30pm PDT

Spencer Uyematsu brought the fireworks for Redmond’s Senior Night celebration on Friday. His buddy Yui Suzuki lit the fuse.

Uyematsu’s two-run home run with Suzuki aboard in the sixth inning lifted the Mustangs to a 2-1 victory over Newport and secured a spot in the 4A Wes-King District Tournament.

The entire class had a hand in the win.

Landon Thompson and Emily Tsujikawa each pitched a shutout inning in relief and Dustin Lennon-Jones made a leaping, run-saving catch against the wall in the fourth inning.

Right fielder Hugo Aponte and third baseman Michel Tiglon helped lock down Newport on defense, and shortstop Darek Khabani’s strong throw with the bases loaded nipped the runner at first for the final out of the game.

Even Toma Itagaki, who broke his leg during the Green and Gold scrimmage at the start of the year, was a big presence in the dugout and showed how to contribute to a win despite being sidelined all season.

While it was a night for the Seniors to shine, Sophomore Ryan Rembisz showed why the future looks bright for the Mustangs. The Redmond starter had another solid outing, surrendering one run on five hits over five innings, striking out two with no walks.

The Mustangs had just four hits but Uyematsu and Suzuki—friends since Little League—made theirs count in the sixth. Suzuki led off the inning by slicing a first-pitch single to center, and one out later Uyematsu crushed his third home run of the season to give Redmond the lead.

With the victory, the Mustangs finished the regular season at 9-9, and a tiebreaker made Redmond the league’s seventh seed going into the Wes-King tournament.

The Mustangs will play at Eastlake on Thursday in a loser-out game. The teams split their regular season series.

Stangs Drop a Heartbreaker to Mount Si

By Mustang News 04/26/2019, 10:45am PDT

Through three innings on Wednesday, it looked like the Mustangs had rediscovered their winning formula: grab an early lead, the starting pitching keeps them in the game, the defense does its job, and the bullpen handles the rest.

True to form, Redmond jumped ahead 3-0 on a Colin Curry home run in the first inning and Duncan Warriner was cruising through three.

Then Mount Si came up with a new gameplan: be aggressive at the plate and on the basepaths. Eight straight Wildcat batters led off the fourth inning with hits or productive outs, including two infield singles. 

Mount Si scored four runs and held on for a 4-3 win.

Warriner settled in and didn’t allow a baserunner over the final three innings. He pitched his third straight complete game, allowing four runs on eight hits, striking out two with no walks.

The Mustang hitters, meanwhile, couldn’t bunch together hits against the Mount Si bullpen. Redmond left the tying run in scoring position in the fifth, sixth, and seventh innings.

The loss dropped Redmond to 8-9 and into sixth place in KingCo 4A. The Mustangs will wrap up the regular season tonight with a Senior Night celebration against Newport at Hartman Park. Game time is 6 p.m.
