Sandblasters wrap up regular season with loss on the road.

The Three Rivers Sandblasters ended the regular season with a 15-4 6 ½ inning loss to the Withnell Dodgers in Salem last night.  The Blasters finished with a 9-and-9 record in Area III, in fourth place overall and will advance to Super-Regional play this coming Friday at Liberty High School in Hillsboro.

The Springfield Titans wrapped up their first-ever league championship in Area III with a 15-6 win over West Salem/Dallas.  They secured an automatic bid to the state tournament at Concordia University next week.  The Withnell Dodgers also secured an automatic bid…they ended the season with an identical 12-6 record, but the Titans won the two teams’ three-game series during the regular season.  The Dallas Dirtbags ended 11-and-7 in third place and will host the Area III Super Regional.

Hawks halt Ems win streak

The Boise Hawks held the Eugene Emeralds scoreless and snapped a six-game win streak with a three-nothing win over the Ems last night in Eugene.  The Emeralds will be in Vancouver this evening for a double header against the Canadians… the nightcap is a makeup for their June 30th contest that was rained out.
