LEFTIES: Port Angeles swept by league power Corvallis; returns home for most of July

CORVALLIS, Ore. — The Port Angeles Lefties return home to play 18 games at Civic Field this month and are likely glad to be out of Corvallis, Ore., for the season.

The Corvallis Knights, who draw heavily from Oregon State, an NCAA baseball powerhouse, have won five straight West Coast League championships and are 16-5 this season. They just swept the Lefties in a three-game series.

The Lefties lost Sunday 12-3 on Sunday to complete the sweep. The Knights also won 10-6 on Saturday and 11-1 on Friday, breaking the 10-run barrier all three games against Port Angeles.

Corvallis got up 8-0 after three innings and never looked back Sunday.

Andres Quinones started the game for Port Angeles and took the loss, giving up four earned runs in two innings. Andrew Hauck had the most success on the mound, going 4⅓ innings in relief, allowing three hits and two walks and three earned runs. He struck out four.

At the plate, Adam Paganelli got on base four times. He went 2-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base. Riley Parker was 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI.

Former Port Angeles Roughrider Ethan Flodstrom was 2-or-4 with a walk and Will Mulflur was 1-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.

The Lefties (11-18 West Coast League, 13-19 overall) had Monday off and return to Civic Field to begin a nonleague three-game series against the Highline Bears at 6:35 p.m. tonight.

Notes

Parker is sixth in the WCL North Division with a .333 batting average and he’s tied for third in the North in RBIs with 19. The Lefties’ John Pfeffer is tied for the Division lead with 31 strikeouts in 26 innings pitched. He is also third in the North with a 1.73 ERA.
