TENINO — Hoquiam finished the regular season on a seven-game winning streak, capping the run on Thursday with an Evergreen 1A doubleheader sweep, 8-5 and 8-5, over Tenino.
The wins give Hoquiam (13-5, 13-5) second place in the league standings and a trip to Castle Rock for the District IV 1A tournament on Tuesday. The Grizzlies will take on either Woodland or LaCenter in the opener at noon.
Box score and statistics from the games were unavailable at press time.
In the opener, Hoquiam broke out of its hitless streak in the sixth inning for two runs to trail, 3-2. In the seventh, an RBI single by freshman Jack Skinner tied the game, igniting a six-run frame for the Grizzlies.
The nightcap went eight innings, where Hoquiam struck for four runs in the top of the eighth to seal the sweep. Blake Kelly led the Grizzlies with three hits and three RBI, with Drew Bravos adding three hits and Joel Brydon two RBI.
“We’re peaking at the right time,” HHS head coach Steve Jump said. “We’re excited about the playoffs and I like the way this team is playing.”
