Greensboro needs to win just one of the remaining five games in this critical series to clinch a postseason spot. Hudson Valley must win all five.
The Bowling Green Hot Rods (79-36) have clinched the top seed and home-field advantage in the best-of-five championship series. The teams with the two best records in the 12-team High-A East ? regardless of division ? earn playoff spots, and the Hoppers and Renegades are chasing the No. 2 seed.
The championship series begins with two games at either Greensboro or Hudson Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 21 and 22. Thursday is a travel day to Bowling Green, with games Sept. 24, 25 and 26 if necessary.
The Hoppers pushed Hudson Valley to the brink of elimination Tuesday, scoring 10 runs on 12 hits and 10 walks. All nine men in the lineup reached base at least once.
