High School Baseball: Henley leads Mazama by two



The final day of regular season Skyline Conference baseball is Saturday. Klamath Union needs one win against Hidden Valley to claim a share of the league title.

A sweep gets KU an outright title, but it won’t come easy as Hidden Valley beat the Pels 4-1 in Grants Pass last month.

With at least one victory, it would be the Pelicans first championship in baseball since 1990.

The Henley Hornets have to win both games this weekend to maintain their two-game lead over Mazama for the last play-in spot from the conference. Easier said than done, as Henley hosts second place North Valley whereas Mazama plays at winless Phoenix. Only the top two spots get home games during the play-in round to get into the OSAA playoffs. A fifth team from the Skyline could qualify for the play-ins as an at-large team.

Lakeview is at Cascade Christian trying to end an eight-game losing streak. Bonanza hosts Prospect. The two split in April’s doubleheader. Lost River has two games at North Lake. Lost River is undefeated in league and North Lake is in second place at 3-4.
