The Tennessee Smokies continue to be in their hottest stretch of the season, having won 10 of their last 11 games.

Last night the Smokies extended their winning streak to three straight, and clinched a series win over Birmingham beating the Barons 6-3.

Tonight the Smokies will look to make it 11 of their last 12 in the fourth game of the Barons series. Starting for Tennessee is left-hander Eric Jokisch, who is 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA. Starting for the Barons is right-hander Andre Rienzo, who is making his first start of the season.

Don’t miss your chance to see one of the most entertaining nerds in baseball for Saturday’s 6:15 game, as Myron Noodleman makes an appearance at Smokies Park!  It’s also Pink Ribbon Survivor Night; we’ll honor breast cancer survivors with a pre-game ceremony, then raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation by auctioning off special game-used jerseys following the game.  Show off your big league arm with our postgame tennis ball toss, sponsored by Fast Frame!
