Great Lakes Gets Playoff Victory in Game 1


Midwest League Division Series Championship Playoff

Besides the LAD NL West clinching victory, the High A Dodger affiliate, Great Lakes Loons, started their playoff game.  They were the away team facing off against the Cleveland Guardians affiliate,  Lake County Captains.  Behind some solid pitching of River Ryan (win) and Ben Harris with the save, and the hitting of Damon Keith, Eddys Leonard, and a key clutch bases loaded single by Dalton Rushing for his first A+ hit, the Loons prevailed 7-2.

The two teams will now head to Great Lakes for Game 2 of the Division Series Championship.  If they win on Thursday, they move on to the Midwest League Championship series.  Adolfo Ramirez (1-0, 1.46 ERA in the regular season) toes the rubber for the Loons, opposing fellow righty Tommy Mace (1-5, 4.55 ERA) for Lake County.

The Loons had the three keys to winning last night. That is, good pitching, timely hitting and good defense.
