After two nights of back and forth nail biters, why would the Mahoning Valley Scrappers and Tri-City ValleyCats deliver anything less in the final game of their three game series. The Scrappers and ValleyCats each led at one point before entering the bottom of the 9th tied at 4. A one out, three run homerun from Terell Joyce would end the game and prevent the Scrappers attempt at a three game sweep.

Though the lower levels of the minors are more about development than raw results, it is always great to see a top prospect putting up strong numbers down in Lake County.
