Playoff Scenarios

  • Biloxi: Must win at least three of four remaining games against Mississippi, and Pensacola must win two games more than Mississippi does. Two losses by Biloxi, or a combined three losses between Biloxi and Pensacola, will knock Biloxi out of the playoff race.
  • Wisconsin: Two game lead for final playoff spot with four games to go. Any combination of two wins by Wisconsin or losses by Burlington will put the Timber Rattlers in the playoffs.
