Holloway helps Henley avoid a sweep against Mazama

KLAMATH FALLS -- Offense wasn't in short supply

So when Skyline Conference-leader Henley fell behind second-place Mazama in the eighth Saturday in Game 2 of a doubleheader, there was no need to worry.

B.J. Holloway's no-out, two-run single lifted Henley to a 9-8 victory in the nightcap to earn a split with the Vikings.

Mazama won Game 1, 7-5.

"Of course, we would have liked a sweep," said Henley coach Joe Tacchini. "But in games like that, both really emotional games, with both sides playing very hard, we feel good about the split."

The Hornets, now 18-3 overall and 15-2 in the Skyline, maintained their slim conference lead with the win in Game 2. Mazama now stands at 12-4 and remains a half game ahead of 12-5 Phoenix.

Holloway finished with two hits and four RBIs, while Kirk Cunningham had four hits and knocked in two runs. Brian Kinsman added a solo home run - his eighth of the season - in the fourth inning.

Justin Nelson led Mazama with three hits and three RBIs.

In the opener, Cunningham blasted a two-run homer to give Henley a 4-0 lead after the second inning.

Mazama climbed back with five runs in the fifth on six hits to tie the game at 5-5 and took the lead for good one inning later.

Kyle Blank, Chris Bocchi and Mark Manfull each had two hits for the Vikings, while Scott Gelhardt and Corey Stewart had two apiece for Henley.

"I didn't think the games would be as high scoring as they were," said Tacchini. "I thought both teams would keep each other in check.

"Mazama did a good job of running the bases and putting the pressure on us."
