Congrats to the Rochester Red Wings for avoiding a losing record. After two straight years of 90+ losses, they finished .500 in 2012. Considering the talent on that club, one would have to say Gene Glynn did a great job.
Especially since the Twins kept taking their starting pitching.

Later that inning, Wang-Wei Lin took advantage of a missed cutoff man to clinch the win with a 3-run inside-the-park homer, giving the Snappers a 6-1 win over Quad Cities.
Beloit finishes the 2nd half of MWL with a 38-32 record, good enough for 2nd place. They had already clinched a playoff birth by also finishing 2nd during the 1st half of the season. They'll play at Clinton to open a best of 3 playoff series on Wednesday.
