The Vancouver Canadians advanced to the Northwest League championship following a 2-1 series clinching victory vs. Spokane on Thursday. The Canadians won Game 1 of the series with a 2-1 victory, setting up last nights Game 2 matchup as an elimination game for Spokane.
The Vancouver pitching staff carried them to the clubs first postseason berth in three seasons and that strong play continued in the Northwest League semifinals. Toronto’s No. 8 prospect, Nate Pearson, took the ball in Game 1, striking out 10 in four scoreless innings. Zach Logue, a 9th round selection of Toronto in the 2017 MLB draft, followed that performance with a solid outing of his own.
The former Kentucky Wildcat tossed four scoreless innings, setting up the Canadians bullpen with a 2-0 lead in the top of the 5th. Logue faced a total of 14 batters, striking out 4 of them, while only giving up a walk in the 2nd and a single in the 3rd.
The 6-0 LHP set the tone from the start, striking out the first two batters he faced. Logue worked around a lead-off walk in the 2nd and a single in the 3rd inning, before a three up, three down in his final inning of work.
Keep up the good work, Zach! BBN is proud of you!
