SB Silver Hawks headed to Midwest League Championship


The South Bend Silver Hawks are headed to their first Midwest League Championship in five season.

South Bend beat the Ft. Wayne Tin Caps 9-5 in game three, of the best of three Eastern Division series. Silver Hawks third baseman Brandon Drury hit his third home run of the post season to help lead South Bend to the big win.

The game was tied heading into the bottom of the fifth inning when South Bend was able to score five runs. The Tin Caps tried to rally in the top of the sixth, but three more runs in the bottom of the eighth inning sealed the trip to the championship for the Silver Hawks.

Game one of the Midwest League Championship will be played at Coveleski Stadium Wednesday night. They will be playing the Quad Cities River Bandits who ironically beat Beloit 9-5 to win game three of the Western Division series.

Midwest League Championship tickets go on sale Tuesday at 11am.
