The Kansas City Monarchs have a chance to celebrate tonight as they host the Chicago Dogs in Game 4 of the best-of-five Miles Wolff Cup. And you can watch the game here at Baseball America (see below).
Jan Hernandez’s three-run home run led the Monarchs to a 9-6 Game Three win.
The Monarchs had evened the American Association championship series at one game apiece with an 8-4 win over the Chicago Dogs in Game Two of the best-of-five Miles Wolff Cup, thanks to another Hernandez home run. Starter Zac Grotz and relievers Brandon Finnegan and Patrick Weigel largely shut down the Dogs lineup.
The Chicago Dogs had won a wild Game 1 of the American Association championship series as Cody Bohanek’s RBI single in the bottom of the 16th inning gave Chicago a 3-2 win over Kansas City.
The Miles Wolff Cup will continue today with Game 4 of the championship series, beginning at 7 p.m. CT/8 p.m. ET. Baseball America will stream the game here.
