Alan Farina came on in the eighth inning and struck out five of the seven batters he faced for the save.
Bradley Emaus led the league with a .471 batting average in the playoffs. Manny Rodriguez and Mastroianni also had great series batting .353 and .350 respectively. Outfielder Ben Zeskind batted .300 with four runs scored.
Emaus also led the playoff clubs with three home runs, and six runs batted in.
On the mound Marc Rzepczynski went 1-0, tossing six scoreless inning and fanning eight batters. Alan Farina was spectacular on the mound – striking out twelve batters in five scoreless innings. Kyle Walter was also huge pitching in relief Friday. He went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in five post-season innings. Cody Crowell struck out six and didn't yield a run in 4 1/3 innings.
