KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The Klamath Falls Gems were the closest they had been to defeat in quite a while, entering the final two innings down a run at Kiger Stadium Tuesday night. Clutch hits by recently-named West Coast League All-Stars saved the game, however, as Klamath Falls defeated Kitsap 4-3.

On the same day he found out four of his teammates will join him at next week’s WCL All-Star Game, Josh Wong singled to lead off the eighth inning, advanced on a passed ball and then scored on Conner George’s single in the next at bat to tie the game at 3-3.

All-Stars Tanner Nielsen, Parker Miles and Austin Byler combined with Nick Armenta in the ninth inning to set the table for Greg Velazquez who doubled in the winning run. It was the Gems’ second walk-off victory in three nights.

Mike Garrard summarizes another Gems victory:
