  1. If only the El Paso Chihuahuas can do the unthinkable! win at Tacoma or split the series since the Salt Lake Bees don’t have anymore homegames. They can top over .500 they might win the Southern Division, but anything can happen and anyone except the Las Vegas 51’s can win the Southern division.
