Knights bats slumber as Cowlitz sweeps doubleheader 4-2, 2-0

Wednesday, June 26, Corvallis, Ore. – The Knights offense was nonexistent as Corvallis dropped a South Division doubleheader to Cowlitz, ending their six-game winning streak before a crowd of 1,187 at Goss Stadium.

Corvallis (19-5, 18-5 WCL) mustered just two hits in 14 innings and the Black Bears made off with 4-2 and 2-0 victories. The Knights have now been shut out three times in their last seven home games.

In the second game, Cowlitz starter Tyler Schott (Dallas Baptist) faced just one batter over the minimum in blanking the Knights for the first six innings. Their lone hit was a two-out single by Thomas Ferroggiaro (Santa Clara) in the second inning.

The first two runners in the seventh worked walks off of reliever Yoni Castro, bringing the winning run to the plate. However, a 4-6-3 double play and a groundout ended the budding rally.

In the opener, Cowlitz scored three times with two outs in the fourth and added another two-out tally in the fifth to erase a 2-0 Corvallis lead.

The Knights sole hit was a second-inning double by catcher Luke Lavin (Stanford). He eventually scored on two groundouts to give the Knights a 1-0 advantage.

A bases-loaded wild pitch that scored Lavin made it 2-0 in the fourth. However, Corvallis left the bases loaded and had just one baserunner over the final three innings.

Corvallis will attempt to split the series on June 27 on Brooke (K)Night, as we celebrate longtime head coach Brooke Knight. Presented by Coral Construction, all Brookes get free admission with a valid ID.

Oregon State redshirt freshman James DeCremer (0-0, 0.00) is the projected Corvallis starter, opposed by Mac Robertson (1-2, 4.50) of Arizona Western College.

The Knights will play nonleague home games against the Cascade Collegiate League showcase team on June 28 and 29. The CCL showcase team features the top players from the CCL and is managed by Ben Krueger, the head coach at Yakima Valley CC.

Established in 2018, the CCL is comprised of players from regional NCAA, NAIA and NWAC schools. The four teams play on weekends in June and July at Wheeler Field in Centralia, Wash.

The Knights then host the Albany Mid-Valley Southpaws American Legion team on June 30.
