Corvallis wins WCL championship

The bloggers have been busy of late with summer vacations and (yes!) even one of us getting married, but we're back and trying to get caught up on recent news. On that note...

The Corvallis Knights defeated the Wenatchee AppleSox 1-0 on Monday night to sweep their best-of-three series 2-0 and win the WCL championship for the third time in their history. The Knights have now appeared in the championship series six of the last seven years. The AppleSox, five-time winners of the WCL championship, have made it to the finals seven times in the league's nine-year history.

Pitcher Jorge Perez was dominant in the playoffs for the Knights, winning both of his starts while posting a 1.17 ERA. In 15 1/3 innings pitched he struck out 11 and walked only one batter. His WHIP in the playoffs was an absurd 0.46.

Corvallis also swept our expansion cousins, the Medford Rogues, in the South Division final. In the North Division final, Wenatchee swept the Walla Wall Sweets two games to none.

Congratulations to all of the playoff teams for a great season!
