Y'know, it's been a long time since we could mention the Memphis Redbirds and Playoffs in the same sentence..
8-years to be exact...
But, as the second half of the Pacific Coast League season winds down, the 'Birds are right in
The 'Birds return home to AutoZone Park to face a team also positioning for the Post Season...the Portland Beavers.
Portland is 6-1/2 out in the Pacific..
Bad news for Olympic bound Colby Rasmus...he re-injures his groin in the first inning.
Didn't even take a swing and he has to be helped off the field.
No word on how long he'll be out, but he and Brian Barden are scheduled to join Team USA this weekend.
The Beavers go up 5-0 in the 5th when Paul McAnulty knocks one of the base of the wall chasing home a run.
It's all Portland tonight, they get the win 6-3
Same teams Wednesday, 7:05 at the Zone.
