Cougars Await Beloit Final for Playoff Fate

Season Finale Loss Puts Cougars in Playoff Limbo

September 3, 2018 9:44 PM ET

The mid-west rain prevented a smooth nine-inning contest, but the Kane County Cougars were determined to complete their regular season finale for a potential playoff clinching scenario. The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (37-33, 68-71) instead had other plans as they spoiled the party with a 4-1 win over the Cougars from Northwestern Medicine Field Monday night. The Cougars won't know whether they are playoff bound or not until the Cedar Rapids-Beloit game concludes Monday evening. After a 16-6 record to finish off the regular season, the Kane County Cougars finish 2018 with a 72-66 record.
