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

Alberta Grizzly.
