Final homestand

The final homestand of the season is upon us, as the Z’s begin a season-ending string of nine games tonight with the opener of a five-game set against the Omaha Storm Chasers. The race is over for New Orleans, who lost in Round Rock last night, then saw the Express clinch the division title approximately a half-hour later when Albuquerque fell to Memphis. The Z’s can still play spoilers, however, as the race is heating up for Omaha, who leads their division by four games over Memphis entering tonight.

Logan Morrison has been recalled by Florida, but the Zephyrs are making up for it by getting another big bat in the lineup with the return of third baseman Matt Dominguez, who had missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. Dominguez was off to a hot start in August before the injury, batting .378 with 10 RBI in 10 games.

Tonight’s lineup:

  1. CF Coghlan
  2. 2B Thurston
  3. DH Rottino
  4. 1B Cervenak
  5. 3B Dominguez
  6. RF Romero
  7. SS Martinez
  8. C Davis
  9. LF Padilla
