Defending West Coast League champion Corvallis is closing in on securing the playoff spot for the first-half of the season

OUTLOOK PHOTO: MATT RAWLINGS - Tyler Parker is greeted at the plate after hitting a home run during a recent home game against Wenatchee. The season may not have started the way that the GreyWolves planned, but there is still plenty of time for Gresham to make a run at the postseason.

The GreyWolves completed the first half of the season with a 10-17 mark that put them on the bottom of the South Division standings.

However, they are only three games back of second place Yakima Valley and five games behind first place Corvallis — the top two teams in the division advance to the playoffs.

One other positive aspect for the GreyWolves is that the standings are broken into two halves, meaning that Gresham resets its season tonight with the start of a three-game home series against reigning-champion Corvallis.

If the GreyWolves have the best second-half record, they will receive an automatic bid to the playoffs.

The GreyWolves started last year by going 11-16 in the first half, but bounced back by going 15-12 in the second half. This season, Gresham will be hoping for an even better showing in the second half.

"It's my last summer here, so I want to play as long as I can," Curtis said. "I don't know how much baseball I got left. Every game matters. It would be really fun to make a run with this group of players."
