The Forest City Owls will take on the Macon Bacon in the Coastal Plain League semifinal.
The Owls defeated the Gastonia Grizzlies in a thriller at Sims Legion Park on Sunday afternoon, scoring the winning run in the top of the 9th with a Garrett Blaylock RBI groundout. In fifteen matchups this season, the Grizzlies held a 9-6 advantage in the season series before dropping the playoff game.
Forest City will travel to Luther Williams Field in Macon, GA tomorrow tonight to take on the Champions of the South Division, the Macon Bacon. The Bacon advanced to the semifinal courtesy of their 7-3 victory over the Savannah Bananas. They defeated the Owls in both official games they played this season, with a July 4th contest being rained out and eventually cancelled.
First pitch is set for 7:05, with the winner earing a spot in the Coastal Plain League Championship Series.
