Tempe Angels Qualify for the Playoffs
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.
