Cheney High School’s baseball team wrapped up its regular season by splitting its final four games 2-2, but it was the two losses that hurt the most.
Needing a win against Pullman to seal a Great Northern League title, the Blackhawks came up short in both games of an April 27 doubleheader. Cheney’s late rally fell short in game one — the one that mattered — as the Blackhawks lost 3-2, followed by a 5-1 setback in the nightcap.
Pullman hurler Hyatt Utzman scattered three Cheney hits through the first six innings. But in the seventh, the Blackhawks made things interesting.
