In 0 to 0 struggle, Puyallup scores the go ahead run in the 7th inning and holds off the Bombers to advance to the 4A State Baseball Championship.
Each of the pitchers did a great job controlling the game with great help from their respective defense. Each team was able to keep runners from scoring for the first 6 innings. That was until Puyallup played old school baseball to move the runner around the bases with bunts and sacrifices to score the winning and only run of the game.
The Bombers could steal bases and were not deterred with the left handed pitcher, but couldn't string things together to drive a runner home. The loss ends Richland's attempt for another State championship.
In a fluke accident an errant pitch glanced off the home plate umpire ripping a chunk out his arm. A quick bandage from the onsite medics and he back behind the catcher.
