Game Seven

Jim Farmer for Miami, Andre Castillo for the Sluggers. Miami sruck first in the 4th inning as Ryan Kashiwada and Geoff Favre singled with 2 outs and Everett Jimenez doubled in both.

The Sluggers got one back in the 5th on a Fred Gannon homerun. Jimenez added another RBI double in the 6th. Farmer gave Miami a strong effort with 6 1/3 innings, 4 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, and 6 strikeouts. After a 1 out single in the 7th he left for Don Thompson, and the poet pitched out of trouble.

The 8th inning in Miami belongs to Joel Shapiro, who walked Juan Biras to start things, but got Quilvio Gato to bounce into a double play. He then struck out Hal Glover to end the inning. Miami would score no more, so they turned a 3-1 lead over to Bob Belardi in the 9th.

Josh Block led off. He grounded out to second. Rob Block struck out. Jamal Harrison came on to bat for Willie Gomez and doubled to keep things alive. Julius Alfonzo then lifted a pop foul down the 1B line. Brian Kelly raced over to make the catch, and the Stars celebrate their first ever Superior League pennant.
