Shorewood high school baseball played a much-anticipated championship game with Mercer Island in a battle for the title on Saturday at Husky stadium.

After a scoreless game, Mercer Island got a decisive hit in the bottom of the 13th inning to win the game and the 3A state championship. Shorewood finishes in second place.

The game was still scoreless in the bottom of the 13th inning when a Mercer Island player hit a walk-off home run to win the game 1-0.

The game took a strange twist in the 8th inning when Mercer Island started celebrating a win too early and didn't complete their play.

According the our news partner The Seattle Times

Anthony Scalzo drew a four-pitch, bases-loaded walk and spiked his bat to the ground in elation as he trotted toward first. Noah Hsue came running down the base line from third with the winning run. Mercer Island had won its first ever baseball state title on a walk-off walk in the eighth inning. 
Except, it hadn’t. 
Scalzo was mobbed before he could touch first, which he eventually did. But Brandon Lawler, who was on second, never made it to third base. Shorewood second baseman Steffen Torgersen appealed to an umpire, who agreed and signaled out, a minute after the celebration began.
That whole story is here.

The game ended with the traditional handshakes
