The Chiefs go after the sweep tonight in Clinton. We have really good records from 1983-1994 and again from 2002-2010 but the gap between 1994 and 2002 is very shaky at best and non existent in some spots. This much I know: The Chiefs have not had a sweep in Clinton since at least 2000 and their last sweep anywhere against the LKings was July 3-6, 2006 at O’Brien Field. The Chiefs are 3-11-4 in their last 18 series at Alliant Energy Field and 23-44 in this ballpark since the start of the 2002 season.
Peoria did get a 2-game sweep here in 1988 and a 3-game sweep from August 17-19, 1985. I hope to have a clearer answer later as our beat writer Kevin Capie of the Peoria Journal Star goes through their records from 1995-2001. MiLB only has game by game logs online from 2005 to the present, which is also frustrating.
The lineup has a couple of changes. After catching 2 straight days and playing in 5 straight games, the red-hot Micah Gibbs gets a day off, as does Elliot Soto who is hitting .292. Rubi Silva is also out of the lineup after striking out in four of his six at-bats last night
