“The lack of concentration there [in the fifth] – I think – obviously snowballed into what could have been the worst baseball game in the history of the sport.” – Matt Erickson.

From the Game Story:

This series is the final meeting of the regular season between the Timber Rattlers and River Bandits. Both teams missed the playoffs in the first half and are fighting for one of two spots in the second half. Quad Cities is now up two games on the Rattlers in the Wild Card standings. Additionally, Quad Cities now leads the season series 7-6 and has outscored the Timber Rattlers 63-58. The first tie-breaker is the team that wins the season series. The second tie-breaker is run differential.

I will add that the third tie-breaker goes to the team that wins the final meeting of the season between the teams…Seriously.

Still a long way to go in the season. Just something else to think about for later.
