5 Manitoba Northstars @ 4 Toronto Rush 9am Turf
Trey Morrill of the Northstars was missing barrels the entire morning
on the turf field to open the CWL Postseason. He was dazzling in his
complete game effort, surrendering just a single earned run while
scattering four hits to knock off the Rush 6-1. Eric Tellaroja got
touched up for four runs coming out of the bullpen for Toronto to
leave little doubt ahead of the bottom of the seventh inning. The
Northstars earned a date with the top seeded, Alberta Grizzly tomorrow
at Palm Springs Stadium for one of two Canadian Division round games
tomorrow at Palm Springs Stadium.
3 Palm Springs Power @ 2 Palm Springs Chill 10am Stadium
It took two extra innings, but the Chill walked off the Power by a
score of 5-4 for the second time in five days. Neil Uskali for the
Chill and Angel Landazuri for the Power each went the regulation
distance. Both teams were tied at one run through seven innings.
Izayah Alvarez plated a two run single in the top of the eighth inning
in a bold decision to pitch to him with a base open. The Chill tied it
in the fourth thanks to an error by the normally sure-handed Taylor
Meaux at first. A passed ball in the top of the ninth and a base-hit
by Roberto Berdecia through a drawn in in-field gave the Power a
one-run lead. Aaron Cook tied the game in the bottom of the ninth on a
double and Hyun-Woo Kim delivered the game winner on a bloop single to
left field in the local rivalry game.
4 Washington Bluesox @ 1 Oregon Lumberjacks 12:30pm Stadium
The Bluesox clobbered the Lumberjacks’ starter, Jared Dingus early for
five runs in the first two innings to hold on for a 6-3 victory.
Coming in with a 4-11 record, Washington knocks off the Number 1
seeded Oregon Lumberjacks, 6-3. Trevor McGee struggled with command
early in his start for the Bluesox, allowing three runs on three hits
and a couple walks through the first two innings. He settled in after
two innings, allowing a single base runner via walk, no runs, and no
hits in his five inning effort. Washington plays the Chill on Saturday
for the American Division Championship game.
The CWL Playoffs continue tomorrow at 10am and 12:30pm at Palm Springs
Stadium as the No. 3 Canada A’s take on the No. 2 British Columbia
Bombers and the No. 5 Manitoba Northstars look to upset the No. 1
