    West Coast League
    ALL-STAR GAME CANCELED — At Klamath Falls, the West Coast League All-Star Game at Kiger Stadium was canceled due to rain.
    The storm left the field unplayable following the league's home run derby, which was won by the Victoria HarbourCats' Gabe Clark.
    The Medford Rogues return to league action tonight with a home game against Walla Walla at 6:35 p.m. at Harry & David Field.
