The North squad swept the south in this year's Oregon All-Stars baseball series and Lake Oswego's Brock Pellow made some big contributions to the effort.
Pellow was selected as one of the top seniors in the state after putting in a terrific season for the Lakers as the team's ace and centerfielder.
In the first game of the series, the North's pitching was on full display as Southridge's Jace Fry and three relievers shut the South line-up down in a 4-0 victory.
The North put up two runs in the second and eighth innings which was more than enough offense to earn the win.
Pellow played in both right field and center field in the game and drew a walk.
In the second game, both teams' offense showed up in an exciting back-and-forth showdown.
The South took the early lead and would go up 6-3 in the top of the fifth inning.
Pellow gave up three earned runs in two innings of work but the North would rally for a 10-7 victory.
Pellow provided a key hit in the game as well.
He knocked a two-run single in the bottom of the fourth inning which tied the game at that point.
In the second game of a doubleheader on Sunday, the North, having already clinched the series, went for the sweep.
Pellow got the start for the team in centerfield and the North ground out another close 6-4 victory to go undefeated.
This year's All-Star series was held at Goss Stadium on the campus of Oregon State University.
The majority of the players who were selected to the teams will go on to play collegiately.
Pellow also hopes to play at the next level but is currently undecided on where he will attend school next year.
