Eastern League Championship Series - Game 1

Pitching matchup: RHP Brett Marshall vs. RHP Paolo Espino

Situation: Game 1 of best-of-five the Eastern League Championship Series, starting at scenic Canal Park in picturesque Akron, Ohio. (If you can't tell, I love it here.)

Adonis Garcia - CF
Ramon Flores - LF
David Adams - 3B
Zoilo Almonte - RF
Addison Maruszak - SS
J.R. Murphy - C
Tyler Austin - 1B
Kevin Mahoney - 2B
Rob Segedin - DH
Brett Marshall - RHP

Jordan Henry - RF
Tyler Holt - CF
Chun Chen - DH
Jesus Aguilar - 1B
Matt Lawson - 2B
Adam Abraham - LF
Ryan Rohlinger - 3B
Davis Stoneburner - SS
Roberto Perez - C
Paolo Espino - RHP

Notes: Manager Tony Franklin indicated today that there's a good chance that Brett Marshall would come back and start Game 5 if the series get that far. That makes sense, given it would be his day to pitch. ... Kevin Mahoney has 10 hits this year against Akron and has hit .292 against the club, which probably played a role in his getting in the lineup today over Walter Ibarra. ... As I reported earlier, Mark Montgomery, Danny Burawa, Zach Nuding and Dellin Betances are headed to the Arizona Fall League.
