Rain, rain, go away.

Let the RiverDogs play today.

The Charleston RiverDogs, currently in first place in the second half of the Carolina League South, begin its last regular season homestand tonight with the first of six games against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

“The RiverDogs’ final homestand is jam-packed with promotions, jersey auctions and competitive baseball,” said Ryan Perry, the team’s marketing and entertainment director.  “While we continue the unique promotions and family-friendly fun, the players have their sights set on another playoff berth to defend the 2021 championship. 

“Whether a dog lover, Marvel fan or jersey collector, catch a game at The Joe before the 2022 season ends!”

The Pelicans (25-29) are in fifth place in the league despite winning the six-team division in the first half of the season.  But next week’s six away games in Columbia to end the RiverDogs’ regular season might have a bigger impact. The Fireflies (30-23) are just 3.5 games out of first place.  

The RiverDogs, which placed second in the first half of the season, currently have a 34-20 record, leading to lots of speculation that the team will be in the playoffs again.
