Selah Tops Ellensburg 5-1 In First Day Of 2A State Baseball Final 4; Advances To Championship [PHOTOS]
The Washington State class 2A Baseball tournament kicked off this morning at Yakima County Stadium with two of the final four teams representing the Yakima and Kittitas Valleys.
In a tightly contested game on a gorgeous morning, the Selah Vikings used a single run in each of the first and second innings to take an early lead and then added some insurance with a three-run sixth inning to hold on to an eventual 5-1 win over the Ellensburg Bulldogs. Center fielder Dustin Yates went 1-for-2 with two RBI to pace the Viks. Cort Dietrich tossed a complete seven innings, allowing only an unearned run on just three hits while walking a trio and fanning 10 batters.
Selah takes on Cedarcrest tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. for the state championship. Selah, who fell in the finals last year, is looking for its first state title in baseball.
