  • CORVALLIS — A great pitching performance by Corvallis Knights starter Chris Haddeland gave Medford little hope as the Knights rolled to a 7-0 win to clinch a three-game West Coast League sweep Wednesday at Goss Stadium.
    The Knights scored a run in the bottom of the third and added three more in the fourth on a triple by right-fielder Dalton Kelly and a sacrifice fly by center fielder Scott Quinlan. Rogues starter Jackson Bertsch (3-1) was chased after five full innings and charged with four runs, two earned, to take his first loss of the year.
    Right-hander Dylan Ramage took over in the sixth for Medford (12-9) and gave up a run in the sixth on another sacrifice fly by Quinlan to make it 5-0. With Max Compton in for Medford, a double steal attempt by Corvallis (14-10) in the seventh led to two Rogues errors and a 7-0 lead.
    Haddleland (2-2) stymied the Rogues on five hits through 6 1/3 innings, walking one and striking out three to pick up the win for Corvallis. The only serious Medford threat came in the seventh, when consecutive singles by Chris DeVito, Levi Periera and Adonis Morrison loaded the bases with one out. But the Rogues were unable to score against reliever Jackson Lockwood, who struck out Nathan Etheridge before inducing a flyout by Clayton Meyer to end the threat.
    The Knights, who took over first place in the WCL South standings, allowed only five hits on the night, including two apiece by DeVito and Morrison.
    The next home game for the Rogues will be at 6:35 p.m. today against the NW Star Academy. A firework display will light up Harry & David Field following the game.
    WCL play resumes for Medford July 4-5 with a two-game series against the Bend Elks at Harry & David Field. The Klamath Falls Gems visit Medford on Sunday to make up a game that was rained out on June 25.
