    Dayton Quarterfinal Game Two 9-9-11

    They just resumed in the bottom of the sixth in Lansing. Pat Doyle replaced Josh Smith and got out of the inning to keep Dayton on top 2-1.

    Smith's line: 5.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 8 K.

    Ugh... Do or die tomorrow boys. Hopefully they'll pull it out. It'll be a shame to end the season this way-1 out from advancing, but props to Lansing for hanging tough this game.

    Re: Dayton Quarterfinal Game Two 9-9-11

    I may be overlooking something, but it seems to me that the Midwest League has some pretty screwy rules. First, there was the bewildering ruling during the season by which Dayton was declared the loser of a rain-shortened game in which the Dragons led after five innings but fell behind in the top of the sixth and never had the chance to bat again.

    And now Dayton, after winning the second-half division title and compiling the best overall record in the entire league, must play the deciding game of the quarterfinal series on the road against Lansing, the first-half wildcard winner. Seems that the first-half wildcard winner has the option of playing the first game at home or the second and third. Beats me why a wildcard would have the option over a division champion. (This is not specific to the Dayton series. All the first-half qualifiers, by whatever method, inherit the same choice.)

    Oh well.

    72 or anyone--Is Wolford hurt? Just noticing that he pitched in neither the first or second game of the series.

    Also, is Vidal? He didn't play last night.

    Wolford was warmed up to come in the game when the rain started and they are careful about a guy getting heated up, cooling down for 97 minutes, then heating up again. I would expect you will see him tonight.

    Vidal...huge story lost in the walk-off homer. See the McClelland article in another thread. Team's 20 HR, RBI leader does not play due to attitude issues, his spot in the order comes up twice with a man on third and less than two outs, and both times, the runner does not score.

    This is interesting. Some of the fans who follow the minors only to watch the prospects develop would see this one way. Others who have an intense rooting interest in a specific team would see it another way. The reality is always somewhere in the middle, where winning is more important than many realize but certainly development factors in very strongly. This one, I am sure, has many people talking in Dayton today. Delino had to make a decision.
