The Zephyrs made it back to the playoffs in 2007 for the first time since 2001 when they were declared co-Pacific Coast League Champions with the Tacoma Rainiers (The playoffs were called off due to 9/11). They would be defeated by the Sacramento Rivercats in the championship series. The Zephyrs starting pitching had been raided just before the playoffs by their parent NY Mets when that team started to fall out of 1st place during the Major League pennant race.
