Prep Highlights: Camas baseball tops Union, 7-3


Boston Jensen went 3 for 3 with two doubles as Camas baseball beat Union 7-3 on Friday.

The Papermakers, who had already wrapped up the 4A Greater St. Helens League title, took control with a five-run fifth inning.

Jensen’s second double drove in Jonathan Dabasinskas to tie the game 3-3 in the fifth. Camas would score four more in the inning with Diego Trujillo’s two-run single being a key hit.

Union’s loss means the last of three 4A GSHL postseason berths is still up for grabs.

Skyview can earn that berth if it beats Camas in a makeup of an April 21 game, likely early next week. That contest was postponed after allegations of racial taunts by Camas players in a junior-varsity game between the schools the previous day.

A Skyview (3-5) loss would give the final postseason berth to Union (3-6), who won two of three games against the Storm this season.

Battle Ground (5-4) wrapped up the league’s second postseason berth with an eight-inning win over Skyview on Thursday.
