Kaden Segel held the Raptors to one run on six hits over six innings, helping the Corvallis Knights beat the Ridgefield Raptors 8-4 on Friday, sending the Raptors to a third consecutive loss.

Ridgefield (32-20) has already secured the No. 1 seed from the South Division of next week’s West Coast League playoffs.

The Portland Pickles locked up the No. 4 seed on Friday and will host Ridgefield to open a best-of-3 series on Tuesday. Games 2 will be Wednesday in Ridgefield. Game 3, if necessary, will be Thursday in Ridgefield.

Jackson Nicklaus’ two-out single gave the Raptors a brief 1-0 lead in the third inning. Corvallis countered with two runs in the third and two more in the fifth before putting the game away with a four-run seventh.

Javon Camacho’s two run single sparked a three-run rally in the ninth for the Raptors.

Ryan Camacho went 3 for 4 with a walk for the Raptors. Charlie Royle started the game for Ridgefield, pitching two hitless innings.

The two teams play again Saturday at 7:15 p.m. in Corvallis.
