A day after they were one out away from being eliminated from the Midwest League playoffs, the Lansing Lugnuts instead knocked off the formidable Dayton Dragons, 4-3, in Game 3 of their first-round series tonight. The Lugnuts will face the Fort Wayne TinCaps in the Eastern Division finals.
That means this catchy tune will be played at Cooley Law School Stadium at least one more time this year.
Earlier today, the Kane County Cougars and the Quad Cities River Bandits played Game 1 of the Western Division finals in Geneva, Ill. The River Bandits won easily, 7-0, behind a strong pitching performance by starter Trevor Rosenthal, who threw a complete game. Rosenthal gave up only four hits while striking out three batters.
Game 2 starts at 2 p.m. in Davenport, Iowa, tomorrow. I’ll be there at Modern Woodmen Park and, as usual, I’ll be tweeting updates throughout the game.
