Recap: The Raptors hung close for the second night in a row with seven-time defending West Coast League champion Corvallis at Goss Stadium, even throwing a runner out at the plate in the sixth inning to keep it a one-run game. However, Knights’ closer Kaden Segal (Portland) only allowed one hit over the final three innings and struck out the last five Ridgefield batters to get the save. Corvallis took the lead with a two-run fourth inning.

Raptors bats: A day after raking 13 hits against the Knights, Ridgefield was held to five hits. Leadoff hitter Taylor Takata (Hawai’i) was 2 for 4, Julian Nunez (Pepperdine) drove in the first run in the second inning on a sacrifice fly, and Hunter Katschke (Utah Tech) had an RBI single in the third inning that put Ridgefield ahead 2-1.

Raptors arms: Starter Cole Tryba (UC Santa Barbara) took the loss. He went four innings, allowing three runs on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks. … Isaiah Magdaleno (Hawai’i) pitched shutout ball over the last four innings, allowing five hits with two strikeouts and a walk.

Up next: The Raptors (10-15) complete the three-game series against the Knights (21-5) at 3:05 p.m. Thursday at the RORC. There will be a fundraiser during the game for the Clark County Food Bank, and a select number of lucky fans will get free admission to the game thanks to the Safeway/Albertson’s Nourishing Neighbors Program.
