"He's just a kid that throws strikes," said Bruins head coach Scott Stencil.
"He came out and did amazing."
The eight runs scored to back him up may have helped Nazy's confidence. The Bruins methodically built a lead, scoring in five of the six innings they came to the plate.
"We made some good contact early, and were able to have a couple of balls that fell in," said Stencil.
That resulted in a 4-0 lead going into the bottom of the fourth, when Matthew Butler helped break it open with a two-run double.
Danny Townsend added a pair of hits, including a double, and scored twice.
Despite the loss, Jackson clinched a district playoff berth due to losses by both Mariner and Lynnwood.
Cascade moves on to a season-ending three-game series with Edmonds-Woodway that will decide the league championship.
Stencil said he's sure the players are excited about the chance to win a league title, but "honestly, I'm just happy to be in the playoffs."
