Minor League Baseball screws up playoff schedule

ERROR: Minor League Baseball

MiLB lists this for today's International League playoff game ("Rochester @ Pawtucket, 6:05PM") and this for Sunday's possible game ("Rochester @ Pawtucket, 1:05PM"), and has this for Tuesday's IL championship series opener ...

Durham @ , TBD

However, the "@" should appear on the left side of Durham's name because the Bulls are hosting the first two games and traveling for the final three.

=====
Durham will open on the road at home in the International League championship series.

The Bulls, after finishing a sweep of Indianapolis on Friday, will travel to host either Rochester or Pawtucket to begin the best-of-5 title series.

Pawtucket takes a 2-1 lead into tonight's Game 4, which the Red Sox are hosting. Game 5, if necessary, will be Sunday at Pawtucket.

The championship series is scheduled to begin Tuesday and Wednesday at Pawtucket or Rochester Durham.

The Bulls Pawtucket or Rochester will host the remainder of the series, starting with Thursday's Game 3. Games 4 and 5, if necessary, will be Friday and Saturday.

Chris,
Thanks for letting me know.

Them typesetters'll get you every time ...

Note: guys who started the season down your way are doing amazing jobs with Durham. Kelly, Buschmann, and, my favorite, Kevin Kiermaier. Love watching him play baseball.

Kelly likely was supposed to be a short-term promotion, but his success forced a change. Buschmann did well enough last year to have been there Opening Day.

I like Kiermaier, too. He loves him some Indiana Hoosiers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish, though. (Not really, but his reaction to any mention of those schools is priceless.)
