CORVALLIS, Ore. — Backs against the wall, the Mustangs needed two wins to stay in the playoffs and have a chance to defend their state title.
And they did.
Medford defeated Corvallis twice on Tuesday, 9-4 and 8-0, to move on to the state tournament in Klamath Falls.
Skyler Gaudern led the way in game two, pitching a complete-game shutout on just over 80 pitches. Mustangs get rest before their first game in Klamath Falls.
