With the Klamath Falls Gems in the middle of a playoff race in the West Coast League, the Gems take a break from fully-serious baseball playing a non-league game against the Klamath Falls Black Sox at Kiger Stadium (6:30 p.m. – 960 the Sports Legend).
While the competition will definitely be serious, the game does not count in the Gems’ quest to either close in on first place Corvallis or separate themselves from the Cowlitz Black Bears for the final playoff spot. The Gems and Black Bears are tied at 22-24 on the season and three games behind Corvallis. Bend is a half-game behind both Klamath Falls and Cowlitz in the standings.
