Adrenaline Rush defeat Punishers

Pack your bags, start the car, this series is over!  We have a Champion!  Adrenaline Rush closed the gap, they found their consistency (something this team has lacked throughout the years), they found their composure, dug deep, wanted it & finally got it!

Game 1 was an offensive onslaught!  Ad Rush scored 27 runs (8 in the 7th).  Everyone in the lineup scored at least 1 run.  JC led the team with 5 RBI's batting in the #3 slot (team-leading 54 RBI's on the season).  Steve led the squad with 4 runs scored.  Home runs were courtesy of JC & Jeremy. 

The Punishers had some spark on offense as well scoring 15 in this one.  Erwin (perhaps the fastest player in the league) went 3 for 4 & 2 runs scored.  Jorge did his job at the clean up spot with 2 hits & 3 RBIs.  Pops, the pitcher struggled finding the strike zone walking 9 batters (that just cant happen).  Credit Ad Rush for using the Billy Bean strategy of just getting on base.

Tempers started to flare after Game 1 with almost both benches clearing after some words were exchanged.  Not the first time this kind of thing has happened, but the umpires quickly shut it down & laid down the law.  Play the game or you are gone! 

Game 2 was just straight up back & fourth!  1 run here, another there, nothing spectacular.  Both teams were flat for about 5 innings.  The Punishers carried a 2 run lead into the 6th.  Ad Rush exploded for an 8 run 6th.  No home runs, just simple base hits, line drives.  The Punishers responded with an 8 run 7th inning taking the lead right back.  This was the test we have been waiting for with Ad Rush.  Can they beat a team they are supposed to beat down 2 runs in the 7th?  Well, we have our answer!  It took 6 batters & it was all over when Santos hit the Sac Fly to left field.  How fitting that JC scored the winning run!  I kept hearing Alex shout "This is where we make our money".  I suppose Ad Rush finally found their ability to make it rain!   Congrats guys!
