Charlotte's backs are still against the wall though. Daytona has allowed four runs in five postseason games so far.

Triple-A Durham Bulls (3-0)

Durham was off. The International League championship will start against the Pawtucket Red Sox tomorrow.

Class-A Advanced Charlotte Stone Crabs (3-2)

A late rally helped Charlotte stay alive in a game three 3-2 win. Dan Vogelbach singled home a run for the Cubs in the first inning, and they scored a second run in the seventh to take a late 2-0 lead. In the eighth, the Stone Crabs finally broke their scoreless drought when Jonathan Quinonez put them on the board with a leadoff pinch hit home run. Later in the inning, they thought they had the game tied up when Ryan McChesney was tagged out at home on a Jake Hager single. Brady Williams was ejected arguing the call. Down to their last three outs, Richie Shaffer led off the ninth with a walk, but Drew Vettleson couldn't get the sac bunt down, leaving them with a runner on first and now one out. After Alejandro Segovia also walked, Jeff Malm singled to tie the game, and Quinonez came through again with a walkoff single. Starter Felipe Rivero allowed both runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks in 6.2 innings with four strikeouts.


Star of the day- Quinonez had a large impact for entering the game as a pinch hitter.

Goat of the day- Not much to complain about when one team plays.
