Gohara leads Northwest League to Class A Short Season All-Star Game win

Mariners No. 3 prospect throws 2 1/3 innings of shutout ball

Gohara leads Northwest League to Class A Short Season All-Star Game win

Mariners No. 3 prospect Luiz Gohara helped lead the Northwest League over the Pioneer League, 6-5, in the Class A Short Season All-Star Game.

Gohara provided 2 1/3 innings of late-game pitching to earn the win. The southpaw allowed one hit and struck out two, giving the NWL time to tack on the tying run in the eighth and push across the winning run in the 10th.

Padres 12th-round pick Peter Van Gansen ended the game and won the Northwest League's MVP honors by ripping a line-drive single to right field to bring home Yeyson Yrizarri for a 6-5 walk-off win.

Brewers No. 27 prospect David Denson starred for the Pioneer League, winning league MVP honors after going 2-for-3 with two runs, a solo homer and two RBIs. He knocked in a run to tie the game in the sixth and another to put his team in the lead in the eighth, and he scored the go-ahead run to put the Pioneer League up, 5-4. But Denson's performance wasn't enough as Gohara locked down the Pioneer League's lineup and the Northwest League stormed back for an extra-innings win.
