Down on the Farm: 9/6/2014
Chris Stratton pitched one of his better games of the season and the Richmond Flying Squirrels pulled away from the Akron Rubber Ducks for a final score of 5-1 to win the 2014 Eastern League Western Division Championship. Key Lines:
Devin Harris(LF)- 1 for 3, HR.
Tyler Horan(RF)- 1 for 1, 3B.
Chris Stratton(RHP)- 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 6 K's.
Cody Hall(RHP)- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.
Harris' HR gave the Squirrels a 2-0 lead that lasted until Phil McCormick replaced Stratton in the 7'th inning. Horan's 2 run triple in the 8'th sealed the game and the series. The 3 run rally in the 8'th robbed Cody Hall of Save Opportunity.
The Flying Squirrels now advance to the EL Championship series facing the winner of the Binghampton Mets vs Portland Sea Dogs Eastern Conference Championship series.
