A Giant Leap for the Tempe Angels
Jon Bachanov allowed one hit in 2 2/3 relief innings to earn the win as the Tempe Angels won 3-1 over the Scottsdale Giants in 12 innings.
It was pretty much do or die last night for the Tempe Angels, and they came through with a 3-1 12-inning win over the Scottsdale Giants. The win leaves the Angels one game behind Scottsdale in their division with four games to go. The season finale is at home against the Giants.
Tempe needs to at least tie Scottsdale to qualify for the playoffs, which would be a one-game contest against the Giants, who won the first half. That winner goes on to play the other division’s winner in a one-game title contest.
