Red Sox in Driver's Seat
Monday night brought some clarity to the Playoff seedings for next week's finale, with the Red Sox knocking off the Dodgers 9-7 to capture the #1 Seed at Mississippi College in Clinton. Over in Jackson, The Astros swept the Braves at Milsaps with an 8-0 blanking in Game 1, then completing the twin killing with a 5-3 victory in the nightcap.
Tonight's doubleheader at Madison Central High School will determine the 2nd seed, with both top seeds earning a one-game bye heading into the October 10 Championship Game.
It's simple for the Rockies: one win propels them to the #2 spot by virtue of head-to-head tiebreakers. However, if the White Sox can pull off an upset by sweeping the Rockies, they will move to the #2 seed, earning the spot because they have a tie and will have a higher winning percentage.
