Muckdogs clinch Pinckney Division title with win in Jamestown
The Batavia Muckdogs are playoff bound, and not as just some wild card hopeful, but as certified champs.
Tonight in Jamestown, the Muckdogs recorded their sixth-straight win to capture the Pinckney Division crown.
The team in the smallest city in the league now has a shot at its second league championship in three years.
Andrew Moss turned in another strong outing and Jon Rodriguez homered twice, giving him 11 on the season, as the Muckdogs beat the Jammers, 10-5.
Moss went six-and-a-third innings giving up four runs, but only one was earned. Anthony Ferrara came on to record his second save.
The Muckdogs now lead Williamsport by four games and Jamestown by 4.5 in the Pinckney Division.
Rodriquez went 2-5 with two solo home runs. Nick Longmire had two hits and three RBIs. Chris Edmundson continued his hot hitting at the top of the order, with two hits and three runs scored. Yuner Castillo also had two hits.
The division champs return home Thursday night to face the Jammers again, and then play Friday at Dwyer (fireworks!) against Auburn.
The Muckdogs have three more regular season home games, and one more on the road.
