Rangers' farm teams begin postseason play
KANSAS CITY -- Class A Myrtle Beach opened the Carolina League playoffs against Winston-Salem on Wednesday, while the Double-A Frisco RoughRiders began their Texas League playoffs against Corpus Christi.

The RoughRiders are playing a best-of-five series, while the Pelicans are in a best-of-three against a team that had the best record in the Minor Leagues this season. Winston-Salem will also host all three games by virtue of winning both the first- and second-half titles in the Northern Division.

The RoughRiders play the first two games in Frisco and the final three in Corpus Christi. The RoughRiders' pitchers for the first three games are Barret Loux (14-1, 3.47 ERA), Wilfredo Boscan (7-5, 3.75) and Nick Tepesch (6-3, 4.28). Cody Buckels could also get a start at some point, while Justin Grimm will work in relief.

The RoughRiders are without third baseman Mike Olt and shortstop Jurickson Profar, who are with Texas in the big leagues. The Pelicans have also had significant turnover in their roster as the season has progressed. Their three starters are Luke Jackson (5-2, 4.39), Joe Van Meter (4-5, 2.06) and Nicholas McBride (2-3, 3.76).

The Rangers had five of their six Minor League teams make the playoffs last season. They had three this year, including the squad that has already won the Arizona Rookie League title.
