UPDATE: Kentlake, Snohomish advance in 4A baseball

UPDATE: From Craig Smith:

Snohomish beat Olympia 3-2 tonight in a pitcher’s duel and is back in the 4A state-title game.

There was a bench-clearing incident in the game.

Olympia lefty Adam Conley retired 15 Panthers in a row after the first inning until Brian Wolfe singled to lead off the seventh inning. Pinch runner Ryan Lyski advanced to third on a wild pitch and passed ball and tried to score on a pitch in the dirt. He was thrown out and then Conley threw him to the ground. Both benches emptied but order was quickly restored. Conley was ejected.

Snohomish scored three runs in the first inning. Braden Allen and Derek Jones scored on a throwing error by the second baseman and courtesy runner Cameron Woolsey scored while Travis Cuykendall prolonged a rundown between first and second in a steal attempt.

Kramer Champlin homered over the left-field fence in the sixth inning for Olympia’s first run. Damon Porter followed with a double and Jones was lifted as the pitcher and replaced by Ethan Hargrove. Porter went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a passed ball.

Richland beat Snohomish 7-3 in last year’s title game.

UPDATE: Kentlake 5, Richland 4

Here’s how our Craig Smith summed it up:

“Talk about drama!

Kentlake rallied in the bottom of the seventh to scored two runs and beat defending 4A champion Richland 5-4. With one out, the Falcons got four hits and an intentional walk and then Lewis Larson’s single to right scored Bobby Tannehill with the winning run.

Brett Jacobs hit a 2-run homer in the first inning for Richland.”

UPDATE: Kelso 5 , Meadowdale 1

Kelso pitcher Trevor May pitched a three-hitter and struck out 12 to move his team into the 3A championship game tomorrow against Kennewick. May is senior right-hander who has committed to the University of Washington but could face a tough decision if taken high in the draft.

All five Kelso runs were unearned and Meadowdale committed an uncharacteristic four errors.

Kelso’s Nate Nyman had the game’s only extra-base hit, a double in the seventh inning.

Kelso plays Kennewick at 4 o’clock Saturday at Safeco Field.

Kennewick 4, Issaquah 1 .

Junior right-hander Tony Bryant struck out seven and scattered seven hits for Kennewick in the complete-game win over the defending 3A state champions.

The Lions (18-7) move into the 3A title game Saturday against the Meadowdale-Kelso winner.

Andy Salermi homered for Issaquah in the second inning.
