The Tulsa Drillers are in the Texas League Playoffs for the second straight year and post-season action returns to ONEOK Field on Friday, September 7 for the Texas League North Division Championship Series. The Drillers will host the first-half champion Arkansas Travelers (Seattle Mariners) in game three on Friday, September 7, and games four and five, if necessary, on Saturday, September 8 and Sunday, September 9.
The Drillers will begin the series in Little Rock, with games one and two on September 5-6.
Tulsa claimed its second straight Texas League playoff appearance and is looking for its first Texas League Championship since 1998. Last season, the Drillers came within one game of winning it all but came up just short, falling to Midland in game five of the championship series.
Just like in the regular season, the playoffs will also include some exciting promotions. Friday, September 7 will include an exciting post-game fireworks show. If the series extends into the weekend, Saturday September 8 will be Buck Night, and Sunday, September 9 will be a Kids Eat Free Day.
A complete list of promotions for the playoff games are listed below.
The Drillers played very well at ONEOK Field throughout the entire 2018 season. They were 43-28 at home, including 23-14 in the second half. The season series with the Travelers was split down the middle at 16-16, but the Drillers fared better in the second-half going 10-6, including 6-2 at ONEOK Field against the Travs.
