Kitsap’s best run up the score at annual All-Star Senior Game

EAST BREMERTON — Kitsap eldest high school baseball players went out with a bang on Wednesday as the American All-Stars and the National All-Stars finished their end of the year showcase in a 15-15 tie in 10 innings.

While some will go on to the All-State Baseball game June 8-9 in Yakima, the rest have likely played their last games wearing their high school uniform. It gives players one last chance to play with and against the players and coaches from around the West Sound at the event hosted and organized by the Kitsap Athletic Roundtable at the Fairgrounds.

“It’s more relaxed than a normal game,” said North Kitsap senior Isaac Richardson.

North Mason pitcher and shortstop Brenden Kimball was given one of the game’s MVP awards along with Chimacum’s Cole Dotson.

Kimball, a former South Kitsap player — his family moved to Mason County before his junior year — went 2 for 4 with a double, two RBI, two steals and two runs scored. But he was surprised to be named a most valuable player.

“I didn’t even know they gave out MVP awards,” Kimball said.

Dotson pitched four shutout innings, giving up just one hit and striking out seven in what was otherwise a high-scoring affair.

North Kitsap’s Kyle Green went out in style for the Nationals squad. He went 4 for 4 with three RBI, including the one that tied the game. Green missed much of his senior season with an injury, but will get to play in the All-State game and will play travel baseball with the Vipers over the summer.

“It was cool to come together,” Green said.

The game looked like it would be a one-sided affair early as the Nationals jumped out to an 8-2 lead in the top of the fourth inning.

With the teams tied at two, Klahowya’s Logan Prater delivered a two-RBI single to left field to put the Nationals ahead. Carson Wiler then singled and the two moved up to second and third on a double steak. Kimball then stepped up and delivered another two-RBI hit. Gig Harbor’s Sebastian Toglia doubled in a run and then Green singled him home.

The Americans came roaring back with a ten-run seventh inning to take a 13-8 lead. Bremerton’s Estan Wakonabo and Ryan Saylor and Crosspoint’s D.J. Doty were among the players that picked up an RBI in that frame.

Wiler tied the game at 13 in the tenth and final frame with a two-RBI double to the left-center field gap. Wiler finished the game 2 for 2 with a double and three RBI. Austin McMinds put them ahead 14-13 with a double of his own and Green knocked in another run with his fourth hit of the day.

Bremerton’s Andy McMartin knocked in teammate Hector Infante with a double in the bottom of the tenth and Jacob Duarte grounded out to second base to knot the game at 15.

Doty was bestowed with the Dick Todd award, which is given to a player annual for outstanding leadership.

Local players selected for the All-State game included Hunter McKlosky and Stratton Fazio of South Kitsap, Green, Richardson, McMartin, Wiler and Greyson McCormick of Central Kitsap.

In the softball showcase game, the Nationals beat the Americans 10-4. North Kitsap’s Sarah Smith won the Dick Thompson MVP award for the Americans and Lamara Villiard was given the Dick Todd leadership award. The Nationals’ MVP was Malia Peato of Bainbridge.

South Kitsap’s Naioki Marion won the Red Brown Scholarship award to Olympic College.
