Tempe Angels Qualify for the Playoffs

Wowee.

The Tempe Angels had to beat the Scottsdale Giants last night in their final game of the regular season to face the Giants in a one-game playoff for the Arizona League’s East Division title.

In the bottom of the 12th with two outs, John Rickard singled home pinch-runner Heath Nichols and the Angels won, 1-0.

So the two teams face each other again tonight, this time at Scottsdale, at 7:00 PM MDT.

The winner goes on to face the West Division winner, the Peoria Mariners, who get a bye because they won both halves of the season. That game is scheduled for Monday.
