The Cardinals and the Reds aren't the only two divisional teams fighting for a shot at the playoffs. Right now the River City Rascals sit comfortably in second place in the Western Division of the Frontier League, but that may have changed by the time you read this. What's certain is that tonight at 7:05 p.m. at T.R. Hughes Ballpark (T.R. Hughes Boulevard and Tom Ginnever Avenue, O'Fallon, Illinois; 636-240-2287 or www.rivercityrascals.com), the Rascals take on the Normal Corn Belters, who have one of the dopier-looking mascots in professional sports. Picture a corn cob with suspiciously heavy-lidded eyes, as if it's taken several belts of, oh, I don't know, corn squeezins; I'm not saying I wouldn't party with that cob, but it sure doesn't inspire confidence. This evening's tilt is the final one of a three-game home stand, and the penultimate series of the regular season. It's also a beer-special night in the right-field beer garden, as if you needed any extra incentive to watch baseball. Tickets to tonight's game are $6 to $13.
