West Linn 9U baseball all-stars collect tourney title in Newberg
West Linn's 9U all-star baseball team was almost perfect.
West Linn won four straight games over the weekend to capture the "Battle in the Berg" tournament in Newberg, outscoring its opponents 88-9 along the way.
The Lions won three straight games to reach the tournament championship, then routed Sandy 19-4 in the title contest.
Lucas Sobotta and George Hultgren each drove in a pair of runs and scored twice in the championship to lead West Linn's offense in the final game.
The 9U all-stars have now won 18 games this summer, with just one loss.
They look to continue their winning ways over the Fourth of July weekend, as they travel north for a tournament in Tacoma.
