The Athens minors’ baseball All-Star’s post season came to an end Thursday.
They lost to Valley West 12-0 in the loser’s bracket at the Pennsylvania State Championship.
Duncan Thetga went 2-for-3 with a double to lead Athens while Eli Hick also had a double.
They drew a game high seven walks — Kam Wheeler and Graham Wanck each had two — but weren’t able to get the hits needed to bring them in.
Thetga started and went 3 1/3-innings, striking out four with nine hits, no walks and eight runs, only three of which were earned.
Hicks went the final 2 2/3-innings, striking out two with one walk, six hits and four runs, three of which were earned.
