Play-In Round Recap

Augusta vs, Little Rock: These teams split in the regular season, suggesting a tight series. But Little Rock's pitching staff dominated Augusta, holding the Polar Bears to a .173 BA and 7 runs in a sweep.

Tucson vs. Richmond: Down 2-0, the Poor Men charged back to win the last 3 and advance tot he Division Round. The turning point was the 9th inning of Game 3: Richmond lead 3-0, but the Sidewinders scratched out 2 runs and put the tying run on, but closer Jacob Franklin got a popout and a groundout to end the threat.

Mexico City vs. Burlington: Desperadoes starters Luis Redondo, Cory Mitchell and Pedro Encarnacion limited the Lake Monsters to 3 runs in their starts, and Mexico City took the series 4-1. Dicky Hudson lead the offense for Mexico City with 2 HR's and 5RBI.

Charleston vs. Las Vegas: Reports of Charleston's decline were apparently premature, as the Apologists knocked off a tough Las Vegas squad. Charleston used a familiar formula, as SP's Matty Vaughn, Kaz Lim and Bucky Alston were stifling. Lawrence Simspon threw 4 scorless innings in relief and Maximo Cota blasted 3 HR's.
