Eagles Face Summit For Title Saturday

Oregon Class 5A Baseball Championship Hood River Valley vs. Summit, 5 p.m.:  The Eagles look to defend their title against the Storm, who were the top team in the OSAA Class 5A rankings heading into the post-season.  As they did last year, the Eagles are riding defense and pitching in their playoff run.  After a 17-3 win over Eagle Point in round one, HRV defeated Ashland 2-0 on Connor Coerper’s two-hitter, and then knocked off Churchill on a two-hitter by Patrick Harvey, who has also homered twice and driven all of the Eagles runs in the last two victories.  Summit brings in a potent offense led by Washington State-bound catcher Cal Waterman.  The Storm have outscored their playoff opponents 35-8.  The two teams have met twice in the last two years, with HRV defeating Summit 10-0 in a play-in game two years ago, and the Storm winning a regular season game in Bend last year 3-1.  Game time at Volcanoes Stadium in Keizer will be at 5 p.m., and you can hear the game on KIHR AM 1340/98.3 FM.
