KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The Klamath Falls Gems bid for the postseason came up one game short, losing to the Corvallis Knights 4-2 on Thursday night at Kiger Stadium.

The Gems magic number was one, meaning a Klamath Falls win or a Cowlitz loss clinched the Gems spot in the West Coast League’s West Division series. Cowlitz defeated Bend 5-0 and will now face Corvallis Friday night in the opening game.

Mike Garrard recaps the 2012 Klamath Falls Gems season:

The Gems finished the season 26-28.
