A quick recovery by Trail Minor All Stars catcher Scott McLaren, as he tags out the Chewelah runner at the plate, was a key play in the All Stars 6-5 victory over the visiting U.S. team on Tuesday at Andy Bilesky Park in Trail. The All Stars combined great defence and timely hitting to comeback from a 3-2 deficit in the sixth inning for the victory. The win ties the season series with Chewelah at two-games apiece, with the rubber match set to go in the final tournament of the season in Colville, Wash. this weekend. It was the final home game for the age 9-10 All Stars who had a successful season, finishing second in Chewelah’s Chattaquah Days tournament, and third in the Deer Park Wood Bat Tournament.
