Chris Archer had been spectacular all season, first for Daytona and then Tennessee. So, it wasnt a surprise that he was on the mound for the Smokies Thursday night as they opened the Southern League playoffs against West Tenn.

What was shocking, however, was what the Diamond Jaxx were able to do to Archer and Tennessee. West Tenn roughed up the opposing ace and pulled off a stunning 8-3 victory at Smokies Park. Archer lasted only three-plus innings, giving up a season-high eight runs on eight hits, two of which were homers.

West Tennessee went up 8-0, finishing off Archer with a six-run fourth inning. Nate Tenbrinks three-run homer was the big blow in the inning.

While Tennessee answered with three runs in the bottom of the fourth and collected 11 hits overall, the game was never close. Russ Canzler had a homer and two RBIs while Blake Lalli had a pair of hits and two walks.

Jacksonville bested Mobile in the other series opener.

The Voyagers closed out the regular season with a victory on Thursday, 5-2, at Billings. The victory was the sixth in a row for Great Falls and 15th in its last 17 games. The Voyagers will open the Pioneer League playoffs Friday night at Helena.

Ryan Hammes RBI double in the sixth inning broke a 2-2. Jeff Tezak padded the lead with a two-run homer in the ninth as Stephen Hiff pitched four scoreless innings of relief to earn the win.
