The Macon Bacon hosted their first-ever Coastal Plains League playoff game at Historic Luther Williams Field Thursday evening. 

The Bacon, however, were shutout by the visiting Morehead City Marlins 3-0, and now face elimination.

The Marlins can claim the title with a win in game 2 on Saturday at home. 

The “IF” game is scheduled for Sunday in North Carolina as well.
