Edmonds-Woodway 5, Lake Washington 4

BELLEVUE — The Warriors twice walked it off in the bottom of the seventh inning to earn a spot in next week’s state semifinals.

In the round of 16 game, Kohl Gruender hit a walk-off single, bringing home Cruz Escandon for the winning run to cap off the seventh-seeded Warriors’ come-from-behind victory over 10th-seeded Ballard. Edmonds-Woodway trailed by four runs in the fourth inning before scoring three in the fifth and one apiece in the sixth and seventh.

Finn Crawford had three RBI, Luke Boland two runs and Lukas Wanke and Andreas Simonsen one run each. Grafton Marshall-Inman pitched seven innings, striking out seven batters.

Then in the quarterfinals, uncharacteristic Edmonds-Woodway defensive miscues in the top of the seventh gave second-seeded Lake Washington a 4-3 lead in the top of the inning. However, this time it was Diego Escandon who produced the game-winning hit, as his two-run double ended the game and sent the Warriors to the semis.

Cruz Escandon was 2-for-2 with two ruins and an RBI for Edmonds-Woodway, and Wanke pitched a complete game, striking out two.

Th Warriors (20-5-1) advanced to face third-seeded Mount Vernon in the semifinals at 4 p.m. Friday at Gesa Stadium in Pasco.
