Since Montgomery could still tie Jacksonville or Mobile for the South Division title, the Southern League laid out the tiebreaker scenario Friday.
If the Biscuits tie Mobile, there will be a one-game playoff Wednesday in Mobile. The winner drives to Jacksonville and starts the best-of-five playoff series Thursday.
If the Biscuits tie Jacksonville, there will be a one-game playoff Wednesday in Montgomery. No matter who wins, the Biscuits and Suns will start their playoff series Thursday in Jacksonville. The teams one-game playoff would decide only who would host Games 4 and 5, if necessary.
Jacksonville hosts the first two games of the playoff series next Thursday and Friday. Mobile/Montgomery hosts Game 3 next Saturday.
I don't know how much effort the Suns would put into a one-game showdown. They're already going to the playoffs. If they win, Games 4 and 5 will probably be a day-night doubleheader on Sept. 11 because the NFL's Jaguars are home Sept. 10. Why waste a top-flight pitcher in the one-game showdown?
