Cowlitz blanks Corvallis 1-0 to take series

Sunday, July 9, Longview, Wash. – After banging out 15 hits last night at David Story Field, Corvallis could only muster three singles on Sunday afternoon and were blanked by the host Black Bears.

All Cowlitz needed was a first-inning run off Knights starter Ethan Ross (San Jose State) as the Black Bears staff held the Knights scoreless and took the series two games to one.

The Knights bullpen extended its scoreless streak to eleven innings as Corvallis relievers twirled 4 scoreless innings today to go with 5 shutout frames on Saturday and the last two innings on Friday.

Ross delivered a quality start, allowing one run while striking out 6 over four innings pitched. Returnee Kaden Segel (Portland, pictured), who earned first-team all-WCL honors in 2022, made his 2023 debut with two scoreless frames. Kaden’s brother Kellen Segel (Linn-Benton CC) retired the side in order in the seventh-inning and Bransen Kuehl (Utah) put up a zero in the 8th.

USC’s Ethan Hedges led the offense reaching three times with two singles and a walk. Ethan Hott (Stanford) reached base twice, on a single and HBP.  Hedges and Hott were the only Knights to get on base.

Corvallis split its six games with the Black Bears, and dropped to 18-12 with the loss.

The Knights return to play on Tuesday, July 11 at Springfield to start a three-game series with game two being played at Goss Stadium on Wednesday, July 12.
