Merchants defend title at KIBT

The Everett Merchants have won the 46th edition of the Kamloops International Baseball Tournament. The title is the second in as many years for Everett, as they defeated the Alaska Goldpanners 6-1 in the Championship game.

The Merchants were led by Jared Maxfield, who pitched a complete game in the final. Maxfield scattered just four hits through his 9 innings of work and only walked one batter while striking out three.

Everett scored a pair of runs in the 1st inning, added two more in the 5th, then tacked on insurance runs in the 7th and 9th. Alaska scored their lone run in the bottom of the 9th.
