Richmond’s opponent in 1st round

 It was several nights ago that the Richmond Flying Squirrels clinched a playoff spot, and just a few nights ago that they wrapped up the division title.

 What we did not know until last night was who they would play in the first round. Now we know. It will be the Akron Rubberducks in the opening round. The schedule for the best-of-5 series is as follows:

Game 1-Wednesday September 3rd, at Akron

Game 2-Thursday September 4th, at Akron

Game 3-Friday September 5, at RICHMOND

Games 4-5, if needed, Sept 6-7 at RICHMOND

Best of 5, so the first team to win 3 games will play for the Eastern League title.

Akron is a 7-time Eastern League champion, while the Squirrels will be in the postseason for the second time since coming to Richmond.
