Week 24: Good Week in Georgia; Now for the Last Hurrah

After a tough two-loss start, the Bulls won four in a row down in Lawrenceville, Georgia. They are now back for their last home games and 1½ games ahead in the IL East. The roster is newish, but they are still playing terrific baseball. Standings.

The Bulls have six home games against the Norfolk Tides and three away games against the Charlotte Knights. That's it. End of season. No more Bulls baseball in 2022. Unless they win the IL East, then at least one game out in Las Vegas.

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (in second place) have six away games against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs followed by three home games against the Buffalo Bisons. Both teams have winning records and could prove a challenge to the RailRiders. The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (in third place) had a tough time last week and they finish out their season with six home games against the Charlotte Knights and three away games against the Norfolk Tides. They could easily come back into the running if the Bulls slip.

Looks like every game is going to count.


Norfolk is on a streak. They've won 8 of their last 10 games and 5 of their last 6. We can expect every game to be interesting and something of a lineup mismash as the two managers juggle chaotic roster moves — the Tide's parent club is making a run at a wild card slot; the Bulls' parent club is trying to hang on to theirs.

American League Wild Card

Speaking of the AL Wild Card, Baltimore has faded recently, falling almost out of contention. Will they be raiding the Tides? Probably. Will the Rays raid the Bulls? Of course they will.
