Arizona Advances

Millennium League defending champs Arizona defeated Florida 4 games to 1 in their Quarter-Final playoff series.

In game 1, Arizona rallied for 3 runs in the 7th which was aided by a costly Alex Gonzalez error as the Diamondbacks won 4-3. The Marlins evened up the series in game 2 by a 11-4 score behind Mike Lowell's five hits (with two home runs) and four RBI's.

The series moved to Florida for game 3 and Curt Schilling fired a 4-hitter with 11 K's to give Arizona a 2-1 win. Then, the D-Backs took a commanding 3-1 series lead as Brian Lawrence won his 2nd game of the series in a 5-3 Arizona win. Finally, it was all Arizona in game 5, as the D-Backs closed out the series with a 12-5 win. Steve Finley, who hit .391 in the series, had 4 hits which included two doubles and a triple.

Arizona now advances to meet the Cleveland Indians in the Semi-Finals.
