Classic in Corvallis

Corvallis, Ore.- For the second straight game Cowlitz (6-8) and Corvallis (9-5) traded blows but once again the Black Bears were too much for the Knights and won game two 6-5 to take the series.

   Trailing 3-2 with two outs in the top of the seventh, Cowlitz loaded the bases on three walks. Mark Pearson (JR Abilene Christian) then cleared the bases with a double to give Cowlitz the lead back for the third time 5-3. Two batters later Marco Valenzuela (SO Nevada) drove in the sixth Cowlitz run with what turned out to be an important RBI single.

   Christian Cosby (JR Chapman) came out in the ninth to try and earn his first save of the season. While Corvallis did score twice to narrow the gap to one Cosby struck out the final Knight batter to nail down the win.

   The Black Bears first reliever KJ Strickland (JR Linn-Benton College) earned the win. It was his first decision of the season. Strickland pitched one inning giving up one run on two hits which gave Corvallis their only lead but the Cowlitz offense picked him up.

   Starter Nico Tellache (SO Oregon) lasted five innings giving up two runs on just two hits with three strikeouts. Tellache is a returning player from the 2016 team. Trevor Conn (R-SR Dallas Baptist) made his season debut pitching the seventh and eighth innings. Conn gave up just one hit and added a strikeout.

   Cowlitz opened the scoring in the second when Nick Roberts (SO Washington) hit an RBI single. Corvallis answered in the fourth with a lead-off home run.

   The Black Bears took their second lead in the fifth. Austin Ingraham (SR TCU) drove in a run with a single. The Knights got the run back in the bottom of the inning with a single.

   Corvallis took their only lead in the sixth. A two out double put the Knights on top 3-2.

   The Black Bears won their second series of the season. They go for their first sweep Monday at 6:40. Austin Merrill (SO RHP Chapman) gets the start against Nick Morales (FR RHP San Jose State).
