The Victoria Harbourcats have forced a deciding third game in the West Coast League North Division series against the Wenatchee Applesox.

In front of more than 3,000 spectators at Royal Athletic Park, the Harbourcats scored six unanswered runs in a 7-2, game two win to tie the series at one apiece.

The Applesox, who took game one 5-1 in Wenatchee Tuesday night, opened the scoring with a run in the first inning.

But Victoria short-stop Gus Wilson lined a homer over the left-field wall in the bottom half of the first to tie the game.

Wenatchee reclaimed the lead with a run in the top of the third.

But another quick response in the bottom of the third off the bat of Harrison Spohn, who delivered a two-run home run to give the Harbourcats their first lead of the series, 3-2.

Victoria would add three more runs in the fifth and another in the sixth to round out the scoring.

The Harbourcats had seven hits in the ballgame but were helped out by four Applesox errors.

Josh Laukkanen recorded the win for Victoria.

The third and deciding game of the series is Thursday night in Victoria, starting at 6:35 p.m.
