2018 Northwest League Playoffs - Schedule and Results Sept 4, 2018 10:42:57 GMT -8

The following is the complete schedule for the 2018 Northwest League Playoffs.
The defending NWL Champions, the Vancouver Canadians, were eliminated on the second to last day of the regular season, failing to capture the North Division crown that would have clinched their second consecutive postseason berth. With the defending champs sitting at home, it clears a new path for a new champion.
In the South Division Series, the Hillsboro Hops will take on the Eugene Emeralds. The Hops were winners of the first and second half South Division titles and seek their third league championship and their first since 2015. The Emeralds were eliminated from playoff contention in the first half of the season, but clinched a playoff berth by finishing second in the South Division due to the Hops winning both first and second half titles. Eugene seeks its sixth NWL Championship, and their second title in three seasons.
Meanwhile, in the North Division series, the first half champion Everett AquaSox take on the second half champion Spokane Indians. Everett seeks its third NWL Championship and its first since 2010. Meanwhile, the Indians seek their ninth NWL Championship and their first since 2008. The Indians possess the most NWL Championship titles with 8, tied with the now-defunct Yakima Bears.
