Full Recap: JacksonGeneralsBaseball.com
TODAY'S MATCHUP: Similar to the circumstances in Game 4 of last year's North Division Series, Emilio Vargas will get the ball with a chance to pitch Jackson into the championship series. The 23-year-old Vargas faltered under these conditions as a 22-year-old in this game last year (3 1/3 IP, 6 ER, 3 HR allowed), but he's a year older and coming off a seven-inning effort against Pensacola on August 25 (7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER) that ranked among his best this season. He faces 22-year-old Shane McClanahan, who gave up eight earned runs to the Generals on August 15 in 4 1/3 IP. He's allowed 17 earned runs in his last 13 1/3 innings, but the lefty went 10-5 with a 2.46 ERA in 20 appearances between High-A and Low-A. The talent exists for the former first round pick; the proving of that talent is a work in progress.
FOR THE LOVE OF ELLIS-VATION: Third baseman Drew Ellis finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and three runs driven in after Game 3 of the NDS, raising his playoff-leading RBI total to seven over three games. Ellis also is tied with Pensacola's Alex Kiriloff for the league lead with three postseason homers, and Ellis leads the circuit with a whopping 1.955 OPS on 16 total bases over 11 at-bats.
