If they end the night up two games, they still must win one of the final two games or they would lose the tie breaker.
If they end the night one game up, then they also must win at least one game.
If they end the night tied, they must win one game also.
Perhaps knowing this, Kelly started Fennell, and is saving his best pitchers for the Missoula series.
Makes sense. What an odd situation. Doesn't matter if they are tied or one or two games up.
Went back and looked at their schedule. This would have been a Drew Cisco start. So I guess it is Cisco and Romano in the last two games.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
