Valdosta Bombers @ Santa Rosa Beach Bums

valdostaSanta Rosa Beach BumsThe Bums welcome the Valdosta Bombers to the Emerald Coast for 2 games in the best of 7 Division Championship Series.  The Bombers are the National League Central champions boasting a 100-62 record and 10 game lead over Michigan despite a 5 game losing streak to round out the season.  They are lead by OF Steve Finley (.306/.375/.560) who tallied 34 2bs, 10 3bs, and 39 HRs and  Hentgen (18-13, 2.93) on the mound with 164 Ks in 230 IPs.  The Bombers have a superb relief staff lead by Nen (4-2, 2.08, 30 S) and accompanied by Franco (8-1, 1.93, 15 S), Mathews (0-0, 2.30), McMichael (4-0, 2.34, 11 H), and Wagner (2-1, 2.48, 12 H).  Looks like the Bums will need to score early.  Speaking of which the Bums (104-58) squeaked into the Eastern Division Champion position in the last series of the year passing the Steel City Bombers (103-59) who had a fantastic year before stumbling at the wire.  The Bums are lead by Caminiti (.384/.461/.659) who totaled 51 2bs, 37 HRs, and 142 RBI.  He is accompanied at the plate by Thomas (.325/.455/.614) with 21 2bs, 45 HRs, 118 RBI and 123 Ws; Alomar (.312/.400/.448) with 33 2bs; White (.300/.334/.493) with 40 2bs and 101 RBI; and the catcher duo MacFarlane (.339/.416/.646)  with 29 2bs and 24 HRs; and Myers (.311/.359/.453) with 21 2bs.  On the mound, the Bums are lead by Smoltz (20-6, 2.55) with 265 Ks in 257 IP and Rosado (11-4, 2.47) with 61 Ks in 123 IP.  In the bullpen Crabtree (3-4, 2.35, 30 S) and Montgomery (2-1, 1.82, 14 H).  Getting to them has been problematic for the Bums.  The Bombers have bragging rights during the season winning 7 of 12 games.  The series may turn out to be an epic battle down the stretch innings.  Well, fans, buckle in the series is about to start.

Winnipeg was third in era 3.52, Michigan 4.50 at 7th in ERA. Michigan was first in fielding Winnipeg 3rd, Winnipeg was first in batting and scored 6.2 a game and Michigan was 7th at 5.4 runs a game. Vegas-like Winnipeg in 5. Its been a weird playoff weak as the last two series I played the underdog won.
