More Late Drama Has Hops One Win From Championship

Hillsboro wins 2-1 at Tri-City on English 9th-inning HR

By Rich Burk | September 10, 2019 4:50 AM ET

Just when you thought it wasn't possible to match the incredible drama that had taken place earlier in the 2019 postseason, the Hillsboro Hops found a way to do it. On Monday night at Gesa Stadium, Tristin English broke a scoreless tie with a two-run home run in the top of the ninth, and then the Hops withstood a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the bottom of the ninth to escape with a 2-1 win. Hillsboro leads Tri-City two games to one in the best-of-five Northwest League Championship Series, and can wrap up the third title in the franchise's seven-year history with a win either Tuesday or Wednesday at Tri-City.
