Knights complete series sweep with 10-2 victory.

November 30, 1999

Happy Friday, everyone.

----------------------

We ended our regular-season home schedule on a high note on Thursday with a 10-2 win over Gresham that gave us a series sweep. We have now won eight games in a row, and are averaging more than six runs over that span.

We then close the regular season against the Cowlitz Black Bears this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at David Story Field in Longview, Wash. Lefty Hazahel Quijada (3-0, 0.59) of UC Riverside is our projected starter tonight; Cal Poly righty Craig Colen (0-1, 5.40) goes on Saturday. Sunday's starter is undetermined.

If you can't make it to Longview, please catch the game on KEJO-AM 1240, with Mike Parker calling the action.

Yakima Valley clinched the other South Division playoff berth with Gresham's loss. Corvallis will face the Pippins at Yakima on Tuesday in Game 1 of the best-of-3 divisional playoff series. Game 2 will be at Corvallis on Wednesday, as will Game 3 on Thursday, if necessary.

Victoria is already in the playoffs, as the HarbourCats won the North Division's first-half title. Bellingham is one win, or a Walla Walla loss, away from clinching the other North Division berth.

-------------------

Tickets for our Wednesday's playoff game against Yakima Valley are now on sale. We will host Game 2 and Game 3 (if necessary) of the South Division playoff series next Wednesday and Thursday, if necessary.

We are now offering the opportunity in advance to "opt-in" for tickets to a possible third game on Thursday. Purchase your tickets online, at our office or by giving us a call at 541-752-5656.

Fraser will re-assume general manager responsibilities for the Sweets in addition to his role as president of PBV. He will work with the teamís board of directors to establish a long-term plan for the role past the 2017 season.

-------------------------------

The Clinton LumberKings (A Midwest, Mariners) have named Erik Oas as their new "Radio Voice" for the 2017 season.

Oas, 26, will serve as the team's Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations. The San Diego native comes to Clinton following a stint with the Kannapolis Intimidators, the Chicago White Sox Class A affiliate in the South Atlantic League, where he served as their Broadcast/Media Relations Assistant during the 2016 season.

He graduated from San Jose State in May 2013, then spent 2014 and 2015 in the WCL as the Director of Broadcast and Media Relations for the Klamath Falls Gems (2014) and Bellingham Bells (2015).
