For the first time all series, one run didn't decide it.
After playing a 16-inning marathon Sunday night, you didn't really know what to expect in the finale. The deciding factor came off the bat of Ducks' veteran Ray Navarrete. Navarrete, who told Long Island Newsday this was the last time he was going to be on the field as a player, hit a three-run home run in the top of the fourth to give them a three-run advantage. a lead they wouldn't surrender.
Somerset pitching was pounded for 15 hits, and starter David Harden, only went four innings, surrendering seven hits and all six runs. Ducks starter John Brownell, winner of Game 1, went eight solid innings and was named series MVP.
This was Independent baseball at its best. You couldn't ask for anything more. Both clubs rank near the top in attendance; second and third respectively, and the fans definetly go their money's worth.
What's next? How about an unprecedented three-peat?
