How to output the results to a log file using Powershell?

Hey Experts!  Here is a script that I would like to modify to include the ability to write the output to a log file.

$in = $false
$pattern = (get-date (get-date).AddDays(-1) -f 'MM\/dd\/yyyy') + ' * --- SCHEDULEREC STATUS BEGIN*'
$(
  switch -wildcard -file C:\tools\logs\dsmsched.log
  {
    $pattern   { $in = $true }
    '*SCHEDULEREC STATUS END*'  { $in = $false }
    default { $_ | ? { $in } }
  }
)

Thanks Experts!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Since you already have a subexpression around it, you can just pipe the output to Set-Content:
$in = $false
$pattern = (get-date (get-date).AddDays(-1) -f 'MM\/dd\/yyyy') + ' * --- SCHEDULEREC STATUS BEGIN*'
$(
	Switch -Wildcard -File C:\tools\logs\dsmsched.log {
		$pattern					{$in = $true}
		'*SCHEDULEREC STATUS END*'	{$in = $false}
		default						{If ($in) {$_}}
	}
) | Set-Content -Path C:\Temp\Whatever.log
