Patrick Harvey’s bases loaded single in the bottom of the eighth inning gave Hood River Valley a 1-0 win over Pendleton in an OSAA/U.S. Bank/Les Schwab Tires Class 5A baseball semi-final, sending the Eagles to the state championship game for the second straight year. Kam Walker was hit by a pitch to start the frame, and then Pendleton pitcher Quinn Cockburn threw Ryan Ward’s sacrifice bunt down the right field line, moving Walker to third. Kellen Duffy was intentionally walked to load the bases, and Harvey followed with a line drive to right field to win it. Pendleton had a chance to score in the top of the eighth when Jack Peterson singled and Wyatt Morris followed with a double, but Kam Walker delivered a perfect relay to the plate to throw out Peterson. Ward and Cochran were both terrific on the mound. Ward allowed only three hits and struck out ten, while Cochran gave up just four hits and struck out six. Ward’s effort moved the Eagles’ string of shutout innings in the post-season to 22. The Eagles will face Liberty, a 2-1 winner over Summit in 14 innings on Tuesday, for the state 5A baseball title on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at Volcanoes Stadium in Keizer.
