The stage is set for a potential exciting finish to the Class 3A Greater St. Helens League baseball race.

Oscar Golberg went 2 for 3 with two doubles and an RBI as Columbia River beat Kelso 7-4 to move back into a tie for second place in the 3A GSHL.

The win gave MountainView a share of the league championship, but the No. 1 seed to district remains up in the air.

Columbia River finishes with two games against Mountain View on Wednesday and Friday. If River wins both, there could be a three-way tie for first place. If Mountain View wins one game, the likely seeding to district will be Mountain View, Kelso, Columbia River and Prairie in that order.
