Superior League Playoffs: Charlotte vs New York

Game 1: Charlotte took a 4-1 lead in the top of the third, as Mike Carpenter walked 6 batters that inning and 9 in four innings for the game. Charlie Zito could not hold the lead, allowing a 2 run triple to Mick McAndrews in the 4th to tie the game. McAndrews later scored on a ground out. That was all the offense, as both bullpens shut the game down. James Willits pitched 2 2/3 innings for the win and Joe Dirte got the save. New York, 5-4.

Game 2: Charlotte evens the series with a 3-2 win. They score all of their runs early, while Elladan Corinvar strikes out 9, allowing 1 run and 3 hits in 6 2/3 innings. Rob Porter records the last 4 outs for the save.

Game 3: Charlotte wins a blowout, 10-1. Joseph Smith Langford pitches a 2 hitter over 6 innings, and Anakin Solo drives in 3 runs with a single, double, and triple. Jacen Solo and Eddie Cedeno also have 3 hits each.

Game 4: New York evens up the series with a 10-2 win. Eddie Carey pitches 7 strong innings while Alex Murray is hammered. Bob Brady hits a 3 run homer, and Brandon Bergeron has a 4 hit game.

Game 5: Mike Carpenter recovers from his game one control problems, going the distance without walking anyone in a 3-0 shutout. Charlie Zito pitches well and completes the game for Charlotte, but a 2 run homer by McAndrews gives New York the 3-2 series advantage.

Game 6: Charlotte loads the bases with nobody out in the first inning off Grant Dunn, but he avoids the big inning by getting Ryan Ponder to hit into a double play. Eddie Cedeno scored on the play, but that was the last run they would get off Dunn. New York gets 2 runs in the bottom of the first on a 2 out, bases loaded single by Vernon Coles. New York added a run later on a Darin Elam single. Dunn pitched 8 innings, allowing 4 hits. Joe Dirte closed the game with a 1-2-3 9th, striking out Mike Connor to send New York to the next round.
