CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Rapids man wins $10,000, just one number away from winning a massive Powerball jackpot last week. 

Jim Stiles matched four white balls and the Powerball in last Wednesdays drawing landing him a $10,000 prize.

Stiles claimed his prize Monday after buying the winning ticket from the Kwik Shop on Center Point Road in Cedar Rapids.
