AUSTIN — Blake Jennings pitched a 2-hitter, and Pleasant Grove reached the state baseball finals for the fifth time in 10 state tournament appearances with a 13-0 run-rule win over Stephenville Wednesday at UFCU DIsch-Falk Field.

Jennings faced just one batter over the minimum for five innings of work. He struck out three, walked two and his defense played flawless behind him, turning a double play and catcher Cason Head throwing out two runners attempting to steal second base.

JM Long launched a pair of triples and drove in four RBI for the Hawks (34-8), Brock Bearden was 2 for 2 with three RBI, and Tucker Anderson was 1 for 2 with a double.

Pleasant Grove ended the Yellowjackets' 18-game win streak with the lop-sided victory. The Hawks play either Sinton or Rusk for the 4A state title at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
