Nebraska Devastated by Playoff Elimination
Sunday, August 21st, 2061
Coming close doesn't make missing the playoffs easier for the Nebraska Nomads. Club manager said it's a "tough pill to swallow" as the club has now been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.

Before this season, the Nomads last missed the playoffs in 2057. In the 37 years they have been a POTD Double A franchise, they have missed the playoffs 25 times. In the last 10 years, they have missed the playoffs 6 times.
Minneapolis Captures Wild Card

Kyle Gaines of the Minneapolis Mud Hens said getting into the playoffs late in the season is "especially sweet."

"Every game takes on a bigger and bigger magnitude and you really feel the pressure, there's nothing like it," he said. "We hope playing in this type of pressure is going to help us once we get to the postseason."

There will indeed be more pressure-packed situations for the Mud Hens if they want to bring the 3rd Round 3 in franchise history home to Minneapolis.
