That coveted “W” stood as much for “whew” as it did “win” to the Eugene Challengers on Friday night. After they’d built an eight-run lead behind the solid starting pitching of Robby Ahlstrom, it took reliever Michael Moore’s strikeout with the bases loaded in the ninth to preserve a 10-7 victory over the Corvallis Marketmen in the first game of their American League state super regional at Swede Johnson Stadium. Eugene (20-20) can take the best-of-three series when the teams meet at 12:30 p.m.
