ROGUES WIN BY FORFEIT: At San Francisco, the Medford Rogues earned a Great West League forfeit win against the San Francisco Seals Tuesday.

The Seals split their team for games in Yreka,California, and Palm Springs, California, and didn’t have enough players available for the Rogues.

The result evened Medford’s record at 4-4. San Francisco, which won Monday’s two-game series opener, 5-4, dropped to 2-5.

The Rogues next visit Klamath Falls Thursday to begin a three-game series against the Gems.
