The Aviators season will be extended through October, Minor League Baseball announced Wednesday.
The MiLB added 10 games to each Triple-A team’s schedule, creating a new postseason format and increasing the number of games to 130 per club.
The Aviators now will play the Oklahoma City Dodgers from Sept. 23 to 27 at Las Vegas Ballpark. They then finish the season Sept. 29 to Oct. 3 at the Reno Aces.
The league is labeling the end-of-season games as the “Triple-A Final Stretch,” and the club with the highest winning percentage over those final 10 games will be acknowledged as the postseason winner.
A regular-season champion will be determined based on the best winning percentage after the first 120 games.
