It was a tough game for seven innings until the Armada scored a run in the 8th. The Spartans almost tied it in the 9th but the Armada defense made a great play and escape with a 1-0 win. Spartans break their three game win streak.

The Mutants freak out the Ghosts and win 3-0.

 

That was only the 2nd win for the mutants. 7 games into the season and they've only given up 8 total runs but have a 2-5 record. They need to grab a strong hitter through free agency in the offseason!

The Smash scored a run in the 3rd. The Beamriders tied it 1-1 in the 5th, then took the lead 2-1 in the 7th. They win 2-1. Both Beamriders and Smash are now two games out of first place with two games each to play.

I guess that officially ends any chance the Beamriders had to win the pennant (not sure they even had a chance before this game). There's always next year.

They had a slim chance. Actually the Ghosts win eliminates the Beamriders, Smash and Mutants. I forgot to mention that.

 

Bombers and Spartans need to win this week to stay in the race.

Live from Pac-Man Park, it's the 2019 Intellivision Baseball League Championship Series between the Ghosts and the River Raiders!

 

This the closest championship series yet.  Both teams come into the series with identical records at 7-3.  The Ghosts have scored the most runs in the league this year with 23, followed by the River Raiders with 21.  They are evenly matched defensively, giving up an average of only 1.3 runs per game.  Both teams also have won their last four out of five games.

 

It's been a hard road for the Ghosts to get here.  They entered the league in 2016 and had a good first season, but had offensive problems in 2017 and 2018.  Their offense struggled early this year, but then exploded in the second half scoring 18 runs in four games.  They have a slight advantage in this series, winning four out of five games at home, and they have home field advantage.  

 

The River Raiders fell one game short of winning the league championship last year in a tight series against the Mutants.  After an inconsistent start this year, they also got hot in the second half.  While the Ghosts are better at home, the River Raiders have won four out of five road games.  They're locked in to complete their mission this year.

 

This series can go either way!  First pitch is in less than a half hour.  Follow along on twitter @intysports

Great first game!

The River Raiders got a run in the 3rd and one in the 5th.

The Ghosts got a run in the 6th and tied it 2-2 in the 8th!

Both teams battled hard until the River Raiders scored two runs in the 12th to win 4-2!

 

Game two is tomorrow at River Raiders Arena. The Raiders won game one last year and were shutout in games 2 and 3, so anything can happen!
