Federal Way, WA — The Camas 12U All-Star baseball team fell to Marysville, 6-5, on Saturday at the Washington State Little League Tournament, and face West Valley tonight in a must-win game.
The boys fought back after falling down by four runs in the fourth inning during Game 1. Their comeback fell short, though. The Camas All-Stars scored three runs in the failed comeback on a home run by Zach Blair, and a groundout by Jackson Knuth.
Camas stayed right with Marysville into the fourth inning, when Marysville hit a home run. Marysville captured the lead in the first inning when player #7 drove in a run when he was walked with bases loaded.

The Camas starting lineup:
- Zach Blair
- Easton McCarty
- Carson Gilligan
- Justin Taylor
- Jackson Knuth
- Tyler Stewart
- Stephen Behil
- Ethan Hubbell

Tonight is a must-win for the boys to continue tournament play.
