We’ve entered the final month of baseball, and for Detroit Tigers minor leaguers it’s a chance to continue proving their prospect bona fides and make one final playoff push.

The Mud Hens traveled to Omaha for a huge series against the Storm Chasers, Kansas City’s Triple-A affiliate, who entered the week just two games behind Toledo in the standings.
