On the other side of the bracket, Hood River Green squares off against White Salmon in the semifinals at 6 p.m. tonight for a chance at earning a finals berth against Pepsi. There have been five games played so far in a single elimination format to determine the Babe Ruth League champions. Pepsi started play as the No. 1 seed, since they only lost one game during the regular season and wound up with an impressive 11-1 overall record. The second and third place teams, ECE and Hood River Green, were both tied with identical 9-3 records. In the first day of play, Pepsi doubled up on Big Sky by an 8-4 margin and then Hood River Green cruised to a lopsided victory over Lyle.
