The Dragons will face East Division champion West Michigan in the playoffs in September in a best-of-three series. Dayton will host the first game with games two, and three if needed, on the road.
The Midwest League has an unusual playoff system that matches the top two teams in each division in the playoffs and those teams are not eligible to win the second half race.
This will be the seventh time the Dragons have made the playoffs. They have never advanced past the second round.
The second half of the season opens Thursday night at Fifth Third Field with Lake County in town for a four game series.
