Mustangs' Season Ends in a 1-0 Loss to Rebels

In a loser out playoff game, the Redmond Mustangs could not generate the offense needed to win, falling to the Juanita Rebels 1-0 at Bannerwood Park.

Junior starter Connor Barison was again brilliant, tossing 6 innings of one run ball.  The hard-throwing right-hander struck out nine and only walked two. The lone run scored on a two out passed ball in the 6th inning.

Redmond, for its part, was only able to generate two hits of their own. However, one of those hits came in the bottom of the 7th inning off the bat of senior Alex Astorga. He was then bunted over to 2nd by senior Jack Vonderhaar who was out at first on a bang-bang play. The next hitter, senior David Gibons, walked putting Mustangs at first and second with one out. Unfortunately, the next Mustang struck out and the final out was a first pitch ground ball to shortstop, ending the Mustangs' season.

Redmond finished 8-6 in KingCo 3A play and 9-12 overall.
