LO baseball shares TRL title after dropping 3 to WL


The Lake Oswego baseball team finished with a share of the Three Rivers League title but perhaps not in the way it envisioned.

The Lakers entered its final regular season series with West Linn needing one win to wrap up the outright league title.

However, the resurgent Lions stole the first game of the series and that momentum carried over to wins on Wednesday and Friday and, as a result, the Lakers, Lions and Clackamas Cavaliers all finished at 10-5 in the TRL this season.

Lake Oswego is ranked No. 10 in the state by the OSAA and will host Southridge Monday in the opening round of the playoffs.

The Lakers had an opportunity on Wednesday before West Linn pulled away with six runs in the top of the seventh for a 9-2 win.

Harrison Reece scored in the first inning on an error and did a nice job keeping the Lions in tact on the mound.

After falling behind 3-1, Lake Oswego got back one back in the fourth inning when Max Anderson knocked an RBI single to plate Tyler Coleman.

The Lakers would load the bases with no outs in both the fifth and sixth innings but couldn't score. West Linn then exploded to put the game away in the seventh.

Friday, with the league title on the line again at West Linn, the Lions held Lake Oswego to just three hits and put up five runs in the bottom of the third in a 6-0 win.
