May 31, 2012
After its first state championship run since 2008, the spring baseball season was over for Hazen High School in the first round after its 4-0 loss against the Kennewick Lions on May 19.
The Lions lead 2-0 after two innings played, with one run scored in each inning.
Hazen got two base runners in the first at-bat but ended the inning with two players left on base.
The Lions’ starting pitcher, Stetson Pew, pitched scoreless shutout baseball in the first six innings with only two hitters getting on base.
There was one final Hazen threat with two base runners in the sixth inning at-bat, with Highlanders on first and second base, but they couldn’t capitalize over Kennewick. The Lions went up two more runs to lead 4-0 after six innings played.
Hazen was last at bat in the seventh, but the Lions managed to hold them to a three-up, three-down inning to clinch the game.
Hazen finished the season 15-8, tying for most wins in a single season at 15.
