Season 18 Wrap-up

In a World Series matching up two franchises vying for their first championship, the Atlanta Swabbies took care of the Fresno Mendozas 4 games to 1 to cap and unlikely run to the title. The Swabbies, the AL six seed, started their playoff run by defeating Season 17 champions Rochester in five games, then defeated #2 seed Richmond also in 5 games, before winning four in a row after dropping the first game of the ALCS to Jacksonville. The Mendozas, coming to the World Series as the #1 seed in the NL and having amassed the second best record in the ML, lost the first two games of the series in extra innings and never quite got their bats going.

This marks the third season in a row that the World Series went to the AL, who now lead the all time series 11 championships to 7 over the NL.

Congratulations to graybeard and the Swabbies management on a wonderful season.
