Bandits Beat Bees; Still Miss Playoffs

The Burlington Bees lost to the Quad Cities River Bandits 9-4 yesterday at Community Field, but while that was happening the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers took care of the Beloit Snappers, to grab the last wild-card playoff spot in the Western Division.

The Bees, who got in by virtue of their first-half-of-the-season play, will take on the Bandits one more time this afternoon at 2 o’clock.   Burlington begins playoff competition Wednesday in Cedar Rapids.
