CK baseball falls in state baseball opener

Central Kitsap’s hopes of challenging for a state baseball title crashed and burned as the Cougars lost 14-1 to Lynnwood in the first round of the Class 3A tournament Saturday at Rister Stadium in Kelso.

Central Kitsap (22-3) allowed seven runs in the top of the first inning. It took the Cougars 29 minutes and 60 pitches to record three outs. Starting pitcher Griffin McCormick recorded only one out before being relieved by Matt Vessey.

Lynnwood (16-8) tacked on four runs in the third inning and three runs in the fourth as the Royals advanced to face Southridge in the quarterfinals.

Central Kitsap, which finished third at state in 2015, scored its lone run in the fourth inning.
The game was delayed 45 minutes due to rain.
