ELGIN — All eyes were on the Elgin-Nyssa baseball doubleheader Saturday, with the fates of four teams depending on the outcome.

Nyssa didn't leave any doubt in the end, beating the Huskies 17-7 and 14-2, but that didn't settle much in the league standings. Both Nyssa and Joseph finished with 9-1 records, and both Elgin and Union ended up 5-5.

That means a pair of playoff games to determine who plays whom in Saturday's district tournament at Eastern Oregon University.

Joseph meets Nyssa at 4 p.m. today at EOU's Snowflake Field, with the victor getting the top seed at district.

The Elgin-Union playoff will likely be Tuesday, although a time and place had not been determined by The Observer's deadline.

In Elgin's first game Saturday against Nyssa, the Huskies trailed only 10-7 after the fourth inning. But the Bulldogs retired the last nine batters and added to their lead with a three-run sixth and a four-run seventh inning.

"We had some critical errors and it just hurt us," Elgin coach Gordy Simons said.

Elgin had 11 errors in the 12 innings.

The highlights for the Huskies included two home runs.

Tyler Davis had a solo shot in the first inning of the first game, and Skyler Payne had a two-run shot in the fourth inning of game two.

Blake Eckstein and Codi Burgess each had two RBIs in the first game.

Imbler closes inaugural season with two victories

HALFWAY — The Imbler Panthers finished their inaugural baseball season with a pair of wins.

Imbler beat Pine-Eagle 7-3 and 6-3 Saturday in the non-league doubleheader. Next year, these games will be Wapiti League games.

"We have a very young team and they came through. We're going to be tough next year," Imbler coach Grant Crow said.

Pitcher Jeff Smith struck out 10 Spartans and held them to three hits in getting the win in the first game.

Travis Hoskins had two hits for Imbler (3-10) in that game.

In the second game, Hoskins had two more hits and Imbler jumped out to a 5-0 lead after the first inning.
