The Espoo Expos have already secured their place in the 2013 baseball SM-sarja finals. The Expos’ challenger in the finals will be fought out in the final 2 games of the regular season.
Helsinki Puumat’s road to the final is in their own hands in their game against the Expos on Thursday, August 15 at Ruskeasuo sports field, Helsinki. A win puts Puumat in the finals after missing out on last season’s final series. A loss opens the door for the Malmi Bullets to return to the finals should they win their final game against the Tampere Tigers on Monday, August 19 at Ruskeasuo. A win would tie Bullets and Puumat with 7 victories each, but Bullets would move on due to the tie-break in games against Puumat 3-2.
