The Issaquah High School baseball season came to an end Monday when the Eagles lost to Redmond 15-3 in a loser-out 4A KingCo Conference game at Woodinville High School.
Issaquah finished the season with an 8-14 record.
Redmond knocked out Issaquah starting pitcher Andrew Kemmerer in the third inning when the Mustangs scored six runs to go ahead 7-0.
The Mustangs, who were regarded as one of the favorites for the KingCo title this year, had 13 hits, two that were home runs. Patrick McGrath, who had one of the home runs, drove in five runs. Nick Rothermel hit the other home run.
Jake Bakamus had two hits and drove in a run for Issaquah.
The Eagles had their youngest team in 18 years under coach Rob Reese. Issaquah had just three seniors on the roster. With most of the starters and all of the pitchers returning, the Eagles have high hopes for the 2012 season.
One of the highlights for Issaquah came early this season came when Reese picked up his 300th career victory.

Skyline fell to Newport 10-1 Monday. Newport pitcher Cole Wiper tossed a three-hitter and struck out seven batters.
Newport plays Bothell at 7 p.m. Thursday to determine KingCo’s No. 1 and No. 2 berths. Both teams advance to the state regionals.
