Lexus takes silver

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 5:46PM

The Lexus All-Stars baseball team, all 10-year-old Mercer Islanders, played five games to earn the silver medal in the AAU Washington State Championship held in Bremerton, Wash., Aug. 5-7. Lexus began the tournament with a dominating victory over the Vancouver, Wash., Mustangs, 17-0. Jamie Lungmus, Logan Barton-Rowledge and Kyle Huber combined for the two-hit shutout. Huber clubbed three doubles and scored three runs, Alex Emanuels was 2-for-3 with a double, every Lexus hitter got on base and 9-of-10 batters scored. In a foreshadowing of the championship game, Sean Casey and Emanuels pitched against the powerhouse Cowlitz County All-Stars, a team selected from all-stars across all of southwest Washington, only to have one tough inning prove to be the difference. Casey held Cowlitz scoreless in the first inning despite having the bases loaded with only one out. After Matt Orehek walloped a long home run in the second for the 1-0 lead, Casey retired all three Cowlitz hitters in the second. Casey allowed the tying run in the third inning, as he once again worked out of a bases-loaded jam by starting an inning-ending double play. Jordan Morris knocked in Huber to give Lexus a 2-1 lead during the fourth. In the bottom half of the inning, Cowlitz hitters found some holes and hit a long double, added a walk and an error to score four runs. Lexus threw out one runner at home and stranded two others. Down 5-2, Lexus battled back, and got their lead-off hitter to third base in both the fifth and sixth innings. The team loaded the bases with the go-ahead run at the plate in the sixth inning, only to have Cowlitz make the plays in the field to leave the final score 5-2. Brian Higgins was 2-for-2 with a double.
