BayBears, Smokies set for Southern League battle

The mighty Mobile BayBears needed all five games of their semifinal series to defeat the Birmingham Barons and advance to the Southern League championship series.

Mobile will face the Tennessee Smokies with Game 1 at Mobile on Wednesday.

The BayBears, after rallying in the ninth inning in a Game 3 win, beat the Barons 7-1 on Monday in the decisive fifth game. The Smokies swept Chattanooga in their semifinal series and are in the finals for a third straight year. They lost to Jacksonville the last two years.

Wednesday: at Mobile, 7:05 p.m.
Thursday: at Mobile, 7:05 p.m.
Saturday: at Tennessee, 7:15 p.m. EDT**
Sunday: at Tennessee, 5 p.m., if necessary
Monday: at Tennessee, 7:15 p.m., if necessary

**--The Smokies regularly started Saturday games at 6:15 p.m. Eastern this season. However, the mighty Vols play at Florida at 3:30 p.m. EDT Saturday, so a 6:15 crowd might be slim.
