Both teams go down a game and now face elimination:
Carolina 9, Mississippi 3
Tommy Hanson didn't have his ace stuff last night as the four runs he surrendered were too much for the M-Braves offense to overcome. The 'Cats added five more runs in the eighth and ninth off of Carlos Sencion, who was inexplicably left out there to surrender three more hits in a second inning of work -- bad managing, unless our bullpen was completely out of arms. The Mudcats drew to within a game of clinching the title and put the Braves with their backs against the wall.
- J. Schafer 2-4, 2B, 2RBI
- K. Ka'aihue 1-3, BB
- J. Holt 1-3, 2BB, SB
- T. Hanson 6IP, 9H, 4ER, 1BB, 7SO
Myrtle Beach 7, Potomac 8
The Myrtle Beach bullpen could hold the lead and Potomac came back to win in extra innings. The Pelicans broke the 4-4 tie in the sixth with an RBI from Phillip Britton, and added to their lead with a Brandon Hicks homeurn, but relievers Tyler Wilson and Ferdin Tejada could not hold the lead and allowed Potomac to tie the game in the ninth with a dramatic two-out three-run homerun. The P-Nats won the game on a bases loaded walk by Brett Butts in the tenth.
- G. Hernandez 2-4, 2B, RBI
- B. Hicks 2-4, HR, RBI
- E. Meija 1-5, 2RBI, 4SO
