The Midwest League will end its regular season this weekend, and prepare for the playoffs that begin next week. The Quad Cities River Bandits have qualified for the postseason, but not the Clinton Lumber Kings.
The River Bandits play at Peoria Friday night, then host Wisconsin for three games Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. After one day off, the Midwest League Playoffs begin on Wednesday ( 9/6 ), but their first round opponent has not yet been determined.
A loss to Kane County Wednesday night eliminated the Lumber Kings from the playoffs. They'll play one last game at home Friday night, against Kane County, then finish the regular season at Burlington Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
