NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Postseason hopes of the Norfolk Tides come down to the final game of the regular season. The Tides held on to beat Durham 3-2 on Sunday for a third straight win.
They currently hold a one-game lead over Rochester for the final wild card playoff spot. It's pretty simple for Norfolk in their final matchup: win and they're in.
As long as the Tides can win at Harbor Park, it won't matter what happens in Rochester's final game. If both Norfolk and Rochester loses on Monday, again, advantage Tides.
Norfolk dooms itself with a loss and a Rochester win. Given that scenario, even though both teams would be tied in the wild card standings, the Red Wings hold the regular season tie-breaker.
It all comes down to the last game of the regular season for the Tides to do something they haven't done in almost a decade.
