If you haven't been paying attention to the Sox' MiLB postseason, it's been kind of ridiculous.
So far, the Salem Red Sox have swept the Winston Salem Dash in 3 games. The first game was a blowout, 7-2. The second game saw Jonathan Hee single in 2 runs in the top of the 11th with 2 outs. And in the final game, Michael Jones hit a walk-off home run in the 10th.
The Greenville Drive has been just as successful, ushering Asheville out the door in 2 games. In the first game, Greenville went into the 9th down 2-1, but turned the tables with back-to-back homers from Ryan Lavarnway (who's got some serious pop) and Will Middlebrooks (on the day after his birthday). And in the second game, Mitch Dening lead off the 9th inning in a tie game and hit a walk-off homer to seal the deal.
Lowell hasn't been quite as fortunate, but their games have been just as dramatic, with the opposing Staten Island Yankees (or MFSIY) scoring the go-ahead run in the 9th in the first game, and Lowell striking back with an 11th inning Daniel Butler homer yesterday.
All-in-all, that's 6/7 games that have been decided in the final inning. Not half bad.
We return you to your usual minor lines after the jump.
