Bellingham never trailed in the contest after jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the second behind a two-run double by third baseman Junnior Dishmey-Perez. Brady Locker had a one-out single in the second before the Knights walked first baseman Travis Anderson. One out later, Dishmey-Perez broke the scoreless game with the first of his three hits.
The Bells’ bats stayed active throughout the night as Bellingham pounded out 12 hits and added to its lead with a pair of runs in the both fifth and sixth innings. Along with Dishmey-Perez’s three hits, Locker, Chris Pierce, and Chris Sturdivant each has two hits in the win.
Corvallis finally got on the board in the eighth inning with a two-out single by Jake Rodriguez.
Starter Cordell Greene was solid on the mound for Bellingham pitching 8 2/3 innings of two-run baseball before giving way to Ben Ruff who picked up is second save in as many nights.
Greene struck out six and allowed 12 hits, four coming with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, before Ruff struck out the lone batter he faced to give Bellingham the edge in the game and the series.
