The Central 2B league always represents in the 2B state tournaments, and it is no different in the baseball postseason. Three of the four teams come from this league (Toledo, Pe Ell-Willapa Valley, Toutle Lake) and the lone team from outside the Central 2B league is Asotin, Toledo's next opponent.
Toledo took out Warden in the first round of state by a score of 5-2. Warden was the District 6 champions, and the Indians had to travel to Wenatchee to take on the Cougars. Jackson Kuzminsky played a big part in the offensive charge hitting for three doubles and scoring all three times. He doubled and scored on errors in his first two at-bats, then scored on a sacrifice fly from his brother, Wes Kuzminsky.
Wes Kuzminsky worked the first three innings on the mound, walking one, striking out a batter, and giving up one earned run. Connor Vermilyea picked up where Kuzminsky left off, tossing the next three innings and giving up one run while striking out two batters. Dakota Robins closed the game for Toledo and struck out the side on 11 pitches to end Warden's season. Toledo faced Colfax later in the afternoon.
Colfax entered the state tournament with a 21-1 record, but would end their season at 22-2 following their second round loss to Toledo. The Indians put both of their runs on in the top of the first inning, and rode the stellar pitching of Wes Kuzminsky the rest of the way. Kuzminsky pitched six innings of shutout baseball and struck out eight Colfax batters. Wes Kuzminsky also went 3-3 in the game, and driving in a run in the first inning. Connor Vermilyea came into the seventh inning and shut the door on Colfax to seal up a 2-0 win and a spot in the Final Four against Asotin.
