Newport’s Will Pierce slides into home in a game against Bellevue.

Oregon State recruit Blake Gibbs blasted a two-run homerun in the fourth inning that made a 7-1 Newport lead seem insurmountable, as the Knights defeated Bellevue 11-2 at Bellevue High School on April 18.

Reid Dilley also came up big for the Knights, going 2 for 2 and knocking in three RBIs for first-place Newport (10-5, 8-3 KingCo 3A).

Brandon Andreini pitched all five innings for Newport, allowing the Wolverines (6-8, 5-6) only four hits. Three of those hits came off the bat of Jeff Melby, who went a perfect 3 for 3 and hit a solo homerun in the third inning.

Newport started the game win three runs in the first inning, then added four in the third and two each in the fourth and fifth.

The Knights lead Skyline by one game for first place. Bellevue is in seventh place, ahead of Sammamish and Interlake.
