Season 21 Wrap-Up

In a World Series featuring a re-match from Season 20, and again featuring the top teams from the AL and the NL respectively, the Charlotte Driskills came back from being down two games to three to beat the Fresno Mendozas in another wild seven-game series.

Few would have predicted another season coming down to a game seven for both the Driskills and the Mendozas, but these two teams sure make for an entertaining match-up. The Mendozas got to the World Series following a regular season campaign that saw them win 107 games, and easily advanced to the World Series after only dropping one game in both the NLDS and the NLCS. The Driskills, on the other hand, dropped one game in the ALDS, but were pushed to a game 7 in the ALCS by the Fargo Wood Chippers.

The Driskills, with their back against the wall, and needing to win both games six and seven at Fresno, got timely pitching and hitting to pull off the comeback. On the top of the seventh inning, with the Driskills holding a tenuous 4-1 lead, Hugh Magnusson ripped a bases-loaded two-out double that put the score at 8-1, and was just too much for Fresno to overcome.

For infamy, one of the Gehrig's original team owners, this marks his second Gehrig World Series title, and is only the 2nd owner (cpkung being the other on seasons 4 and 5) to win back-to-back titles.

This marks the sixth season in a row that the World Series has gone to the AL, who now lead the all time series 14 championships to 7 over the NL.

The only two Divisions that have yet to claim a World Series are the AL and NL West.

Congratulations to infamy and the Driskills management on another wonderful season.
