rained out a

second night


-- For the second night in a row, the Southern Oregon Timberjacks and Eugene Emeralds were rained out Saturday.

As a result, the Northwest League Southern Division front-runners will play two doubleheaders when Eugene plays Southern Oregon at Medford, Aug. 31-Sept.2. The doubleheader dates have not been set.

Friday's rainout was the first of the season for the Timberjacks and Eugene's first at home since June 26, 1996.

The Timberjacks (26-20) won the first seven games against the Emeralds this season and return home with a 5-game lead over second-place Portland.

Southern Orego opens a three-game series against defending NWL champion Salem-Keizer tonight at Miles Field.

Othello, North Washington's representative who finished third in last year's regional tournament, blanked Medford on Friday with a 16-0 win. On Saturday, it was Kennewickscored a 10-0 victory.


second in tourney

Tai Kinney faltered on the back nine because of rainy conditions, but still managed to shoot a 79 and stands in sixth place after the first of two rounds Saturday in the Oregon Golf Association Women's Amateur Stroke Play Championships at Quail Valley Golf Course in Banks.

Kinney, a 16-year-old incoming junior at North Medford High, put together nine-hole scores of 38-41 on the 6,042-yard, par-72 layout.

The course was playing long to begin with, said Kinney. It started raining on the back nine. On the back side I was coming up short because the course started slowing down.

Marsha Smith shot a 73 to lead the 38-player field.

I'm capable of shooting lower, said Kinney. I wasn't in any trouble. I kept things in the fairway. I didn't hit any greens in regulation but my short game helped quite a bit.
