PASCO -- Matt Mason struck out nine, walked two and scattered five hits to limit Showtime (Battle Ground) to two runs, but Burbank's offense failed to spark beyond an RBI double in the top of the fourth as the Diamondbacks fell 2-1 to their Vancouver-area challengers in the Triple Crown Tournament championship game.
Burbank's defeated the Premium Tigers (Woodinville) 7-1 in the semifinal.
The Diamondbacks were led in that victory by Corey Brundridge, who provided a two-run double and an RBI triple and went the distance on the mound to strike out 12, walk one and scatter four hits.
