KENNEWICK -- Tyson Patten scored in the bottom of the sixth to earn Kennewick's second run of the game and chip at Seattle's nine-run lead, but Kennewick failed to find a spark in their 15-2, seven-inning loss to the Bombers on Wednesday in the Kennewick Babe Ruth 13-year-olds Pacific Northwest Regional Tournament at Roy Johnson Field.
The contest lifted Seattle to 3-0 in American Division pool play and, combined with Tuesday's 12-9 loss to Calgary (Alberta, Canada), placed Kennewick -- who had a bye Monday -- at 0-2 in American Division play.
The All-Stars will go up against the Glacier League champions Whitefish, Mont., at 7 p.m. today.
The Whitefish team has dominated American Division pool play the previous three days, with wins of 5-2 over Calgary on Monday, 12-5 over Seattle on Tuesday and19-7 over Rock Springs, Wyo. on Wednesday.
In National Division play, Meridian won 4-1 over Central, Ore., and Willamette Valley equalized Hazel Dell's record to 1-1 with a 5-4 edging, a setback for the Vancouver, Wash., area team which defeated Centralia 11-5 in Tuesday's late game.
