The win also guaranteed that the Dragons would finish the season with the best full-season record in the Eastern Division. Which means, if they advance to the second round of the playoffs, they would have home field advantage against all competition.

Smith, in his final start before the playoffs, improved his record to 14-7. He has earned one more win than Bowling Green’s George Jensen. Smith also improved his strikeout total to a club-record 166 and will finish the season as the league leader. He pitched five innings and struck out seven.
