HarbourCats rally late again

Victoria, B.C.- It was deja vu all over again Friday as Victoria came from behind in game two to win the series with a 6-5 victory.

   Cowlitz (9-14) led 5-4 going into the bottom of the seventh inning. Christian Cosby (JR Chapman) started off the inning with a walk. The HarbourCat advanced to second on a throwing error by Cosby trying to pick him off and eventually scored on an RBI single.

   The HarbourCats (14-13) took their second and final lead in the eighth. An RBI double down the left field line that just landed fair brought home the eventual winning run.

   In the ninth inning the Black Bears put runners on first and second with a walk and a single. Mark Pearson (JR Abilene Christian) tried to bunt the tying run to third but a 1-5-3 double play put Cowlitz in dire straits. Victoria closer Travis Kuhn picked up his West Coast League leading fifth save on a strikeout to end the game.

   The HarbourCats jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first off of an RBI ground out and a two run homer. The Black Bears answered back with a two run double from Jace McKinney (JR University of Portland) in the second.

   Victoria increased their lead to 4-2 with an RBI sacrifice fly in the third. Cowlitz tied the game in the fourth on an RBI ground out from McKinney for his third RBI of the game and an RBI single from Devlin Granberg (SR Dallas Baptist).

   Cowlitz took their only lead in the fifth on an RBI single from Nick Roberts (SO Washington).

   The Black Bears were officially eliminated from winning the first half title with the loss.

   Cosby dropped his record to 1-1. The reliever pitched the final three innings giving up two runs, one earned, on three hits with three strikeouts and two walks. Starter ace Corbin Powers (R-SR University of Portland) lasted five innings giving up four runs on three hits with just one strikeout and four walks.

   Cowlitz is 0-5 on their Canadian road trip and are also on their longest losing streak of the season. Nico Tellache (LHP SO Oregon) gets the start Saturday against two-time West Coast League pitcher of the week Adam McKillican (RHP SO University of British Columbia). First pitch is at a spcial 1:05 time.
