The Canadians – a Single-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays – won Game 1 of the series 7-5, before dropping Game 2 by a score of 4-2, both on the road in Oregon.
If the C’s win tonight, they’ll be champions.
Game 4 is set for tonight at Nat Bailey Stadium at 7 pm (tickets are still available online). Right-handed pitcher Justin Dillon (2-1, 1.96) will get the start for Vancouver.
The Canadians (43-33) had the best record in the league during the regular season and are 4-1 in the postseason. They’ve won all three playoff games at Nat Bailey Stadium so far, all by an identical 2-1 score.
If Eugene manages to win Game 4, it would set up a winner-take-all Game 5 Wednesday, also at Nat Bailey.
The Canadians last won a championship in 2013, the third of three consecutive Northwest League titles.
