The World Champion Alleghenys totally dismantled (and that description is an understatement) Detroit in the 2nd round, outscoring the Gangstaz 33-4 in the 3-game set. It's hard to pick out only a couple of Pittsburgh standouts, but you'd have to say Bucky Daal and Rafael Brogna with 7 RBI each.
Detroit GM blanch13 was philosophical about the shellacking: "Our plan is to build long-term and be competitive while we do it. Our division competitors were down this year and we got very lucky in the first round against Cleveland. I'm not surprised or discouraged about the way we played against Pittsburgh - we'll be back here in a year or 2 or 3 and our youngsters will be tougher for the experience."
In other playoff action, Salem and San Juan won to take 2-1 leads, and Jacksonville held off elimination with a clutch 8th-inning rally at home.
The playoffs continue this evening in the pm2 cycle.
