The Tennessee Smokies still have playoff dreams alive as the club enters the second game of the Mobile series at Smokies Park on Saturday night.

Yesterday a seven-run third inning propelled the Smokies to victory in a game that featured home runs by Junior Lake, Rubi Silva, and Matt Szczur.

The Smokies are now five games back of the first-place Chattanooga Lookouts in the second half standings, yet three games back in the wild card standings should Jackson take both halves of the season.

Tonight Tennessee sends right-hander Nick Struck to the mound for his final homes start of the season. Struck is 13-10 with a 3.40 ERA this season, and still leads the Southern League in wins. Starting for the BayBears is right-hander Derek Eitel, who is 8-10 with a 4.26 ERA this season for Mobile.

Fans can listen to the game on the Smokies Radio Network, with the “Voice of the Smokies” Mick Gillispie entering his sixth season as Tennessee’s Director of Broadcasting. The 2010 Southern League Broadcaster of the Year is assisted by Cody Chrusciel, Roger Hoover, Jonathan Guess, and Adam King.
