What A Month!

Jose Macias closed out a stellar month of August with seven shutout innings in the Bees 4-1 win over Wisconsin on Wednesday. Macias finished the month of August with a 5-0 record and a 1.18 ERA in six starts. He allowed just over five earned runs in 38 innings pitched and will get one more start on Labor Day against Cedar Rapids before the playoffs begin next week in either Clinton or Kane County.

Speaking of playoffs, the Bees will play the second half wild card winner. Right now that would be Clinton BUT since Quad Cities already won the first half wild card, the River Bandits will play the second half division winner.

To complicate things the River Bandits are leading the division so if they win the second half title, Quad Cities will play the second place team in the division, the Clinton LumberKings. That means the Bees will play the opponent with the next best record in the Western Division. Right now that is the Kane County Cougars.

As you might imagine, it’s a fluid situation. Stay Tuned!
