AL DPiS Preview

#4 St. Louis Cardinals (90-72) vs. #5 Philadelphia Bacharach Giants (98-64)

Final Rankings - St. Louis #11, Philly #4
Regular Season - Split 5-5, Philly +13 run differential
Probable Pitching Match-ups
Game 1 - Stevie Waters (11-10) vs. Anthony Patterson (19-9)
Game 2 - Sammy Duran (12-11) vs. Timothy Crawford (16-7)
Game 3 - Marvin Campbell (7-9) vs. Mule Service (9-6)
Fun facts - In Season 18, St. Louis beat Philly in 4 games in the DPiS. Despite evidence to the contrary, Mule Service is his name, not what he does.
Prediction - Philly will be too much for St. Louis, unless Clinton Clifton gets hot. Philly in 4

#3 Jacksonville TIMUCUAN'S (95-67) vs. #6 Salem Aggies (88-74)

Final Rankings - JAX #3, Salem #10
Regular Season - Series split 5-5, JAX +1 run differential
Probable Pitching Match-ups
Game 1 - Phil Pride (15-6) vs. Hick Manning (19-11)
Game 2 - Derrek Peters (15-6) vs. Hub Brooks (14-11)
Game 3 - Chad Long (16-10) vs. Pedro Calvo (12-9)
Fun Facts - All six probable starters were 1st round draft picks. 4 of the 6 were drafted in the top 10.
Prediction - I hate to go with the favorites, but Jacksonville is just too good. Manning vs. Pride might happen twice, but I just don't see Manning winning both of those games. JAX in 4.
