Jackson Hotchkiss singled home the winning run in the bottom of the seventh as Battle Ground baseball edged Camas 1-0 on Tuesday.

Batting with one out, Hotchkiss hit a line drive to center field, scoring Noah Salyers from second base. It capped a steller day for the senior outfielder, who went 3 for 3 with a double.

Tigers starter Cooper McGowan pitched all seven innings, striking out three, walking none and scattering seven hits. That allowed Battle Ground to open 4A Greater St. Helens League play with its second win one-run over defending champ Camas in as many days.

Battle Ground first baseman James Gill went 2 for 3 with a double.

Andrew Miller pithed a complete game for Camas, stiking out four, walking one and allowing eight hits. Hayden Ollman and Cade Lukens each had two hits for the Papermakers.
