Chris Tamminen has a lot of questions to answer heading into the 2014 baseball season, but he’s got at least two known quantities to work with.
The Skyline High School coach expects big things from ace pitcher Drew Lunde, a senior lefthander who has committed to play at Washington State University. Offensively, Tamminen isn’t sure what his batting order will look like, except for the fact that senior third baseman Jason Santiago will hit third and be expected to drive in plenty of runs.
Lunde will need to be good this year after Skyline lost three workhorses to graduation — Corbin Powers, Arthur Stromquist and Jacob Gleichman combined to throw about two-thirds of the innings for the Spartans in 2013.

Kyle Gruber hasn’t played varsity baseball for Skyline High School yet, but if he keeps doing what he did June 13, coach Chris Tamminen won’t be able to hold him back.
Gruber needed only 75 pitches to throw a complete-game one-hitter, leading Lakeside Recovery to a 5-0 victory against the West Seattle Indians in a Double-A American Legion game at Skyline.
