One game was a gem, the other was a stinking pile of dung:

Mississippi 5, Carolina 4

The M-Braves pulled off a come from behind win to do what the Atlanta Braves haven't been able to do all season -- win a one-run road game. Deunte Heath started the game and managed to only give up four runs, despite allowing 11 baserunners, and the Mississippi bullpen held the Mudcats scoreless into extra innings. Kala Ka'aihue tied the game at four in the eighth with his first homerun of the playoffs, and 28-year old backup catcher Jean Boscan drove in Van Pope for the winning run in the top of the tenth inning.

  • J. Schafer 3-5, 2 2B, CS
  • K. Ka'aihue 2-5, HR, E
  • J. Holt 2-5, 2B
  • L. Valdez 1.1IP, 2K, W
  • S. Marek 1.2IP, 1H, 1K

Potomac 15, Myrtle Beach 0

This game was nothing to write home about. The best performance came from former Braves prospect and first-round draftee Luis Atilano... remember him? He was the Tommy John injured pitcher we traded for pinch hitter Daryle Ward at the trading deadline in 2006. Atilano has now thrown 11-straight scoreless innings in the playoffs. Though he really didn't need to in this affair. As you can see from the score, the Braves pitching was not too good, but it was not to be outdone by the Braves fielding. Four errors led to six unearned runs before the flood gates opened. Cory Gearrin was the only Pelican's pitcher that did not give up a run.

  • E. Campbell 2-4, 2B, E
  • T. Jones 2-4
  • T. Flowers 1-3, BB
  • J. Heyward 0-3, BB
  • E. Mejia 0-3, 2 E
