Puyallup, which was nationally ranked at one point in the season, is led by mashers first baseman Quinn Rawson (.406 batting average, seven home runs), outfielder Darian Clemens (.443, 10 doubles) and third baseman Adam Stump (.474), and left-handed starter Luke Heimlich (0.57 earned run average, 9-0 record).
