Georgia. This is their third championship in the last four years.

The Dawgs came back scoring two runs in the third with Don
Corr scoring on a triple by Nick Autorina, who later scored on a wild pitch, to
take a 2 to 1 lead. In the bottom of the
third the Tainos came roaring back on an RBI double by Oscar Ramon and an RBI
single by Rafael Feliciano to regain the lead 3-2.
Scott Bradley relieved Dawgs starting pitcher Joe Tatham in
the bottom of the fourth. Scott gave up
a run in the fifth before shutting out the Tainos over the last four
In the top of the seventh the Dawgs scored a run via a bases
loaded walk to Brannon Perkins. With two
outs and two strikes on the batter, the Tainos attempted to pick off a runner
at first base and threw wildly which allowed all three base runners to score
giving the Dawgs a 6-4 lead.
That was all the runs Scott Bradley would need. Over the final six innings Scott scattered
three singles and struck out six Tainos in pitching the GA Dawgs to the 2017
Oscar Ramon was the tough luck losing pitcher. He pitched very well for eight innings
allowing only four hits while striking out 13 Dawgs. Ralph Garcia relieved for the Tainos in the ninth
and gave up three runs on a triple off the bat of Brannon Perkins.
