For the second time in three seasons, the Bellingham Bells have advanced to the West Coast League Championship Series, and they’ll be facing a familiar foe.
They’ll host Corvallis – the team they beat to claim the league title in three games in 2014 – in the first game of the best-of-three series at 7:05 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, at Joe Martin Field. Games 2 and 3, if necessary, will be played Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 15-16, in Corvallis, Ore.
The Knights and Bells last met in June, with Corvallis winning both regular-season series 2-1, but Bellingham has won 11 of its past 13 games since July 27.
