The Plateau Baseball Club, consisting of players from White River and Enumclaw high schools, opened play Saturday in the state American Legion championships.
The local squad opened with a 5-3 victory over Lakeside Recovery, then fell 18-11 Sunday to Mount Spokane. Sunday’s loss was particularly painful because the Plateau crew was ahead 8-0 after three innings; that was before the eastern Washiington team began pounding the baseball.
Monday afternoon, the Plateau club played a loser-out contest against Colville. A victory would assure the PBC of a top-eight finish.
