Prep highlights: Union baseball tops 2A state champ Tumwater


On a day that saw most Southwest Washington high school sports rained out, Union baseball is glad Monday’s game got in.

The Titans beat reigning Class 2A state champion Tumwater 10-3, opening their season on their home artificial turf after Monday’s steady rain had passed.

Tumwater jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first inning with Brayden Oram leading off the game with a home run.

But Union bounced back with two runs in the second and tied the game 3-3 in the fourth.

The Titans erupted for fourth runs in the fifth inning after the first four batters reached base on a single, a walk and two hit batters.

Union’s Blake Geffert went 2 for 2 with a double, triple and three runs scored. Dylan Richardson pitched three innings of scoreless relief, allowing one hit.

Stars of the day

  • Landon Milligan, Skyview boys soccer, scored a hat trick as the Storm opened the season with a 3-1 win over Columbia-White Salmon.
  • Igor Povazhniuk, Hockinson boys soccer, scored the tying goal in the second half of a 1-1 draw against Seton Catholic.
  • JP Warnell, Camas boys soccer, had a goal and an assist in a 2-1 win over Mountain View.
