Portland Beavers sold to Padres owner

PORTLAND -- The Triple-A Portland Beavers were sold to a group led by Jeff Moorad, owner of the San Diego Padres.

Beavers owner Merritt Paulson told KGW-TV that the deal is expected to close in December and is conditional on approval from the league.

Paulson says there wasn't the political will to move the team locally after Major League Soccer was invited to play at PGE Park.
