Camas baseball falls to Issaquah in 4A regionals

Papermakers held to three hits in 6-0 loss

By , Columbian Sports Editor

LACEY – For Camas baseball senior and team leader Drew Hancock, a loss Saturday in the 4A state regionals won’t define this season.

“For me it was the experiences with my teammates,” Hancock said. “We’ve played together since Little League. We’re all grown up now. It was a good run.”

The Papermakers season came to an end with a 6-0 loss to Issaquah at Regional Athletic Complex.

Issaquah starter Maxwell Goldberg kept Camas in check, allowing three hits and striking out eight in a complete-game effort.

“We just have our off games,” Hancock said. “You can’t be perfect all the time. It’s a tough game.”

Issaquah broke through with four runs in the third inning, all with two out. Camas thought it had escaped unfazed after a diving stop on a ground ball by second baseman Chase Howington, but the baserunner was ruled safe at first on a close play. Three more runs scored thanks to an error and two wild pitches.

That was enough support for Goldberg, who walked one and allowed just two runners to second base.

Camas pitchers Ethan Hubbell, Max Freser and Ryan McClaskey allowed just four hits. But Issaquah drew eight walks, including two with the bases loaded in the sixth inning to pad its lead.
