Corvallis Salvages Finale at Bend, Beats Elks 5-2

Thursday, July 1, Bend, Ore. – The Corvallis Knights salvaged their series finale at Bend by beating the Elks 5-2 at Vince Genna Stadium. With the win, the Knights improve to 15-6 in the WCL South.

The day started with the Elks taking the series by edging the Knights 6-5 in an eleventh-inning walk-off win as Bend won a resumed game that was suspended earlier in the day (at 12:15 am).

The Knights rode an impressive start by rising sophomore Grant Taylor of Washington State to capture the finale. Taylor tossed 7 solid innings to earn the win as the right-hander allowed only two runs. Southpaw Sean Wiese of George Fox pitched two scoreless innings to register the save.

Future Oregon State Beaver catcher Tanner Smith led the offense, going 3-for-4 with 2 RBIs.

Corvallis welcomes the big-hitting Ridgefield Raptors to Goss Stadium tomorrow night. The Knights currently lead the WCL South by two games over the Raptors (13-8). The Knights can clinch a first-half title and a WCL playoff berth with a win vs. Ridgefield either at home July 2-3 or at the Raptors on July 4.
