KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The West Division’s final playoff spot will go through Klamath Falls.

Following Tuesday’s disastrous ninth inning where the Klamath Falls Gems gave up a four-run lead to Corvallis, the Gems only allowed a single score in the final inning to win 10-7 over Corvallis.

The win shifted control back to the Gems, who had the upper-hand for the West Coast League’s final playoff spot before Tuesday’s loss.

Now, Klamath Falls has it back, with the team’s magic number is one – a Klamath Falls win or Cowlitz loss clinches the postseason for the Gems. Cowlitz lost 6-3 to Bend on Wednesday.

Mike Garrard talks about Wednesday’s performance:
