Mason Hilty went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and an RBI, helping Team Adams win the consolation game 7-3 over Team St. Helens at the All-State baseball series Sunday at Davis High School in Yakima.

Hilty, a Richland graduate and Mid-Columbia Conference co-player of the year, also caught the final two innings for Team Adams, which scored six runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to erase a 3-1 deficit.

Tim Ruane, another Richland product, also saw some playing time for Team Adams. He went 0-for-2 but scored a run in the consolation win.

Hilty also tossed a scoreless eighth inning for Team Adams in a 9-3 loss to Team Baker on Saturday. Southridge graduate Conner O’Neil went 0-for-2 in that game for Team Adams.

Team Baker won the championship, beating Team Rainier 7-2 thanks to a pair of RBIs apiece from Michael Mazza of Cascade and Alex Hull of Edmonds-Woodway.

Kyle Nobach of Marysville-Pilchuck High School earned offensive MVP honors, going 3-for-6 with a double and three runs scored for Team Baker over the two-day tournament. Justin Vernia of Issaquah got defensive MVP nod after allowing just two hits in four scoreless innings while striking out six in the title game.
