Whenever Braden Mast walked out to the mound, opposing batters cringed. The Hiland senior was a perfect 9-0 for the state runner-up Hawks with a 0.28 ERA in 48.1 innings of work. He stingily allowed two runs, struck out 61 batters, allowed only 16 walks and surrendered 18 hits. Opposing hitters batted .112 against him. That’s downright nasty!
