Call them the Champs! The Vancouver Canadians are the winners of their fourth Northwest League Championship in seven years and their first since 2013.

Vancouver Canadians 2, Eugene Emeralds 1

The Vancouver Canadians (3-1) won another game by a 2-1 score and this time it was the one that put them over the top, beating the Eugene Emeralds for the Northwest League championship.

It was Blue Jays' 2017 first-round draft pick, Logan Warmoth who provided the Canadians with their two runs, driving in a pair in the fifth inning with a single. Reggie Pruitt had another single (the Cs' only other hit) and a walk to get on base twice and he scored a run while Deiferson Barreto walked and scored the club's other run.

Justin Dillon struck out seven in his three innings, giving up a hit and walking two. Zach Logue was credited with the win, giving up the Emeralds' only run on a solo home run in the fourth among three hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Brayden Bouchey struck out three in two innings and Orlando Pascual (2/3 IP, K) and William Ouellette (S, 1/3 IP, K) finished the ninth to seal the win.

Player of the Game: Justin Dillon, Logan Warmoth and Reggie Pruitt
