Minor League Playoff Update

The Beloit Snappers season ended when they got rolled yesterday, 15-3, by Kane County. Ryan Mullins started the game and gave up 4 ER's, but it's Frank Mata's 0.1 inning that is really impressive; he gave up just 3 hits and 0 ER's, but 7 UNEARNED runs were credited to him. Yuck. Offensively, Jose Leger went 3-for-3 with a 2B, and Eli Tintor went 2-for-4. Yeah, those were pretty much the highlights.

That means that Rochester is the last Twins affiliate alive in the playoffs, with their International League championship series kicking off tonight against Toledo. Mike Smith gets the start as the Red Wings seek to get off on the right foot.

UPDATE: OK, I lied. I was a little overeager and jumped the gun on the start of the International League championship series, which actually begins tomorrow (Tuesday, 9/12). Good luck to Rochester and everyone's favorite Smith tomorrow.
