CORVALLIS, Ore. — The two teams in the West Coast League Championship Series combined for four hits in game two Monday as the Corvallis Knights edged the Wenatchee AppleSox 1-0 to claim the title.
Sox All-Star starter Trevor Lubking — the grandson of Gene and Mary Lubking of East Wenatchee — threw a masterful game in the only contest played at Goss Stadium in Corvallis, Ore. Unfortunately Lubking’s outing was trumped by Corvallis’ Jorge Perez, who sealed the 2-0 series-sweep. Each pitcher scattered two hits, went as far as they could and didn’t allow a base on balls. The difference was Corvallis executing a small-ball play in its only real scoring opportunity while the AppleSox couldn’t.
