'Rats racing toward the finish line

August 5, 2012
Richmond RiverRats



Whether they make the playoffs or finish just outside looking in, one thing is certain for the RiverRats.

Whatever happens is going to happen on the road.

Richmond finishes its Prospect League regular season in the next two days, playing twice today at West Virginia before heading to Slippery Rock for the finale at the Sliders.

The RiverRats’ last home game was Friday night, a 9-4 triumph over Slippery Rock with 1,883 fans at a jam-packed McBride Stadium.

That left Richmond tied with West Virginia at the top of the East Division in the second half.

But a lot can happen in a few days. Richmond had five games in three days — four at first-half champion West Virginia — with a playoff berth in the balance and Chillicothe still right in the hunt.

“Every win is important. Every game is important. Every pitch is important,” said Richmond manager Tyler Lairson. “I don’t think anything is going to change our mindset.
