Olympia’s Houser earns All-State win

Baseball: Bears’ ace throws two innings, strikes out three

Staff writerJune 10, 2012 

Olympia senior pitcher Trevor Houser struck out three batters over two innings in relief, earning the victory on the mound to help Team Rainier to a 7-6 victory over Team St. Helens on the first day of the All-State Baseball Series at County Stadium in Yakima on Saturday.

Houser, the only South Sound player in the series, entered the game in relief in the seventh inning when Team Rainier trailed, 6-4, but Rainier scored three unanswered runs in the eighth for the comeback victory.

Team Rainier will face Team Adams for the championship at 3:15 p.m. today at County Stadium. Team Adams defeated Team Baker, 10-1, in the first game.

The All-State series features some of the state’s top senior baseball players. Houser was a first-team All-4A Narrows League pitcher this past spring, leading the Bears to the 4A Narrows regular-season crown with a 3-0 record.
