Union’s bats caught fire in an 11-run sixth inning as the Titans beat Camas 13-3 in a 4A Greater St. Helens League baseball game Tuesday.

Trailing 3-2, Union collected 10 hits in the sixth inning with the first five hitters reaching base.

Topher Anderson kick-started the rally with an RBI double to tie the game 3-3. It was part of a big day for the catcher, who went 2 for 2 and also tripled.

Ty Sutton, Blake Sutton and Drew Hertenstein each had two hits as Union tallied 15 hits in its highest-scoring output of the season.

Jacob Chandler and Zaydon Marguth combined to hold the Papermakers to five hits. Chandler had six strikeouts over four innings.

Union (4-7, 2-3) turned the tables one day after Camas (9-6, 2-3) beat the Titans 12-1.

The 4A GSHL season has been unpredictable as all four teams have at least two losses. Battle Ground and Skyview are in first at 3-2 with four league games remaining.
