As the season turns to fall on the Gulf Coast, enjoy one last weekend of summer with the Biloxi Shuckers as they return to MGM Park for their final two (or potentially three) games of the season in the Southern League Championship Series against the Jackson Generals! The Shuckers are guaranteed two games at home on Friday and Saturday night, with both games starting at 6:35 PM.
With the Southern League Championship Series tied at 1-1, Biloxi returns to MGM Park with their eyes fixed on a chance to win the first Championship in franchise history. Special for the postseason, all draft beers and bottled beers are just $5 all night long. Additionally, fans can take in the action from the Mercedes-Benz Club for just $28 with complimentary popcorn, peanuts and soda, plus access to a full bar.
While Minor League Baseball is centered around a fun environment, this time of year it’s all about winning, and no one has done it better than the Shuckers this year. Biloxi accumulated 81 wins in the regular season, the most in the Southern League this season and the most in the history of the Shuckers franchise. The Shuckers were also stellar at home, winning 47 of their 70 home games, yet again the best mark in the Southern League. That trend continued in their four games at home against the Generals in the regular season, winning three of their four matchups.
As they did on Friday night, the Shuckers will be serving up $5 draft and bottled beer all night, along with access to the Mercedes-Benz Club for just $28. Depending on the result of their game on Friday night, the Shuckers could be playing to clinch the Southern League Title at home. In a not-too-often-seen fashion, the Shuckers have clinched every major milestone at home this season, winning the first half South Division Title, the second half Division Title and the deciding Game Four against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos in the South Division Championship Series at MGM Park.
Led by the Manager of the Year Mike Guerrero, the Shuckers have plenty of offensive firepower, anchored by Southern League MVP Corey Ray. Ray also collected the Brewers Minor League Player of the Year award after leading the Southern League in home runs, doubles, stolen bases and total bases. Biloxi also cranked 145 home runs in the regular season, the most in the Southern League by one team in a season since 2001. And if the game is in the balance, Biloxi has the best closer in the Southern League to clean it up, Nate Griep. A Southern League Midseason and Postseason All-Star, Griep led the league with 34 saves in 37 save opportunities.
