The Cedar Park Christian baseball team held off Overlake, 6-5, despite giving up three runs during the final inning of play on Tuesday in Redmond.

The team from Bothell jumped out to a 3-0 lead before any Overlake players stepped to the plate. The Eagles extended that lead to 5-1 by the end of the second inning.

However, Overlake forged a comeback with a run during the third and three more during the bottom of the seventh inning before Cedar Park shut the door.

Luke Lampe led the way for the Eagles at the plate with two doubles and two RBI, while teammate George Reidy crushed a solo home run from the plate and picked up the save from the mound, earning the final out of the game. Peter Dudunakis had a home run with two RBI for Overlake.

Cedar Park improves to 2-0 on the season with the win. The Eagles will play at 6:30 p.m. on Friday at Marymoor Park in Redmond.
