After multiple rainouts, the Lake Washington and Juanita baseball teams finally met in the Kirkland rivalry game.
With the downtown Lee Johnson Field still soggy from the earlier rain, the 3A KingCo game was moved to the LW turf field on what became a clear, blue-skied Tuesday afternoon.
LW’s Oliver Laufman cranked things up the mound with a one-hit, complete-game outing in the Kangs’ 3-0 victory. The hurler fanned 10 Rebels, surrendered just one walk and whipped 97 pitches over seven innings.
Torin Montgomery’s ground out in the opening inning produced LW’s first run and the Kangs added two more in the fifth. Michael Buchanan added an RBI and the Kangs got two hits from Ricky Koishida and one apiece from Travis Lee, Jesus Vizcarra and Nation Wood.
Kyle Taylor knocked Juanita’s lone hit.
LW — 4-2 in league — snapped Juanita’s two-game winning streak and dropped the Rebels to 2-4 in league.
LW will host undefeated Mercer Island (6-0 league, 12-0 overall) at 7 p.m. tonight at Lee Johnson. Juanita will travel to Bellevue High (5-1 league) at 4:30 p.m. today.
