Friday night’s playoff results now have two teams on the brink of clinching a spot in the Championship Series! Read details on each game here:
Équipe Québec came back from a two-run deficit with runs in consecutive innings to beat the Washington Wild Things 3-2 in game four of the Frontier League Division Series. Washington plated the first two runs in the fourth, when Grant Heyman singled home a run and a Hector Roa double play ball gave them a 2-0 lead. The lead would only last for about an inning, however, as Québec’s Jesse Hodges drove in two runs on his RBI single that tied the game at 2-2. Then, in the sixth, Jeffry Parra broke the 2-2 tie with an RBI single that proved to be the difference in the game. Québec starter Miguel Cienfuegos allowed the two runs on just four hits and two walks over seven innings of work in the win. Washington’s Daren Osby pitched 7.1 innings, surrendering three runs but striking out eight in the loss. Québec can now clinch a spot in the Frontier League Championship Series with a win. Game four on Saturday is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. ET at Stade Quillorama in Trois-Rivières.
The Schaumburg Boomers never looked back after a four-run second inning and defeated the Florence Y’alls 12-2. The Boomers would finish with 16 hits in the game. The four-run second was fueled by a two-run single by Luke Becker and a two-run homer by Nick Oddo. The next inning, Angelo Gumbs hit a two-run shot as well, and in the fifth, Matt Bottcher doubled home a pair before scoring on an error by shortstop Luis Pintor. The Y’alls would get their first run in the bottom of the inning, when Jordan Brower hit a solo home run. Schaumburg answered right back in the sixth with a Quincy Nieporte homer and would add two more in the seventh. An error by second baseman Andres Rios plated a run and Oddo singled home the twelfth and final run for the Boomers. In the ninth, Rios knocked in Florence’s second and final run with a single. Schaumburg starter Ryan Middendorf tossed a complete game in the win, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven. Florence starter Edgar Martinez lasted just three innings after surrendering six runs on eight hits and a walk. Game four is scheduled for 7:03 p.m. ET in Florence, with Schaumburg one game away from clinching a spot in the Championship Series.
