College summer baseball scoreboard…..

Good Saturday morning. Another round of West Coast League action for you to get things rolling on this Saturday. A reminder and that is we’ll be out at the North Bend parade along North Bend Way later this morning, so look for us. We’ll be positioned at a location near the post office and by the construction equipment for the roundabout project.

We start in Yakima where the Pippins rallied for a win in walk-off fashion with the help of a player connected to a Valleyite.

Grant Gorrell, cousin to North Bend’s Gavin Gorrell, went 2-4 for Yakima Valley as the Pippins last night walked it off in 10 innings, 6-5, over the rival Walla Walla Sweets at Yakima County Stadium. Gorrell is hitting .400 for the Pippins since he joined them following an early-season stint with Gavin and the Wenatchee AppleSox. Both Gorrell’s are slated to compete for Boise State University next spring. The Pippins and Sweets continue their series tonight in Yakima at 6:30.

Meanwhile, about the Sox……

Wenatchee blanked in Corvallis: The AppleSox were held to six hits in a 6-0 shutout loss last night down at Oregon State University’s Goss Stadium against the Corvallis Knights. Two of the Valley trio saw action for Wenatchee in the game last night – Fall City’s Justin Lutz went 1-3 with a walk while North Bend’s Spencer Marenco went 0-3 with a walk. The pair of MSHS alums and teammate – and fellow Wildcat alum – Gavin Gorrell, take the field down in the Willamette Valley against the Knights tonight at 7:00.

Also from college summer action:

Edmonton walks it off in playoff battle: The Western Canadian Baseball League playoffs are underway, and last night, the Edmonton Prospects ralled for a 10-inning 5-4 walkoff win over the Okotoks Dawgs in game two of their first-round series, tying it at a game apiece. North Bend’s Tanner Simpson pinch-ran in the game for the Calgary-based Dawgs, but did not score a run. Simpson, a 2014 MSHS grad who just graduated from Lewis-Clark State College in Idaho, has pitched for them this season and could do just that in this series. It’s a best of three so that third game is tonight possibly with all the marbles on the line for both teams.
