No need for any tiebreaker drama in the Class 4A Greater St. Helens League baseball race.
Skyview clinched the league title days ago. Heritage is set at No. 2. Union finished third, and Battle Ground’s win on Friday secured the Tigers the final berth to next week’s district tournament.
Battle Ground will face Union in the opener, with the loser done for the season. The winner will take on Heritage, with that winner facing Skyview in the district championship.
Skyview completed a 14-1 league campaign with a 16-9 win over Heritage on Friday. Brayden Maney hit a grand slam and drove in seven runs for the Storm.
Battle Ground, meanwhile, scored 17 runs in the third inning to beat Evergreen 22-2.
