PASCO – Auburn Mountainview pitcher Shawn Guinn limped around the field after the game, an ice pack bulging from his back pocket.
He had pitched so well, but in the bottom of the seventh inning he took a line drive off his hip, and now he had to deal with the pain setting in.
It was the story of his season: Bruised, yes, but not broken.
Guinn pitched six stellar innings in leading Auburn Mountainview (26-3) to a 7-1 win against West Seattle (21-6) in the Class 3A state championship game. It’s the first state title in the eight-year history of the Mountainview baseball program.
“I’m perfectly fine with it,” Guinn said, smiling. “It’s a war scar, a battle scar.”More
PASCO — Kentridge coach John Flanigan didn’t have any doubts that his team would rebound. But that still shouldn’t diminish what Kentridge had to rally from.
The Chargers took a 10-0 loss to Skyview on the chin in Friday’s Class 4A semifinal, but they quickly regrouped to beat rival Kentwood 4-3 on Saturday for third place.
“We’ve had a classy group of guys all year long that have shown a lot of pride,” Flanigan said, “and I knew we would come out and fight.
“It just shows a lot of heart, a lot of pride.”More
PASCO – Mount Si’s season came to an end with a 6-1 loss to Kennewick in Saturday’s Class 3A third-place game, but first-year Mount Si coach Zach Habben said that didn’t sour his debut season. “We came out and played hard all year and unfortunately we didn’t come out as well as we had this weekend,”…More

PASCO – Kentwood coach Mark Zender couldn’t find fault with the way his team played. He didn’t think they played poorly or that they cost themselves the game.
Instead, he simply thought his team, which won the 4A state championship a year ago, lost in a 1-0 coin-flip game against South Kitsap in Friday’s Class 4A state semifinals.
“I told the guys that it really wasn’t a matter of us not playing well,” Zender said. “It was just a ball game either team could have won. A classic 1-0 game.
“They have a reason to hold their heads high.”More
PASCO – Down two runs with only six outs to go? Auburn Mountainview senior Nick Brooks didn’t worry.
In fact, he was confident. And with good reason.
Brooks and his Mountainview teammates have rallied from deficits all season and did so once again by scoring five runs in the sixth inning to beat Kennewick 6-4 Friday in the Class 3A state semifinals.
Auburn Mountainview will play West Seattle in the 3A state championship game at 4 p.m. Saturday. Neither school has won a state title in baseball.
“I was looking forward to the late innings,” Brooks said. “It’s the early innings that are kind of boring. When it gets to the end, those are the innings that we thrive on and those are the innings we play Mountainview baseball.”More
