Rays are Majors league champs

The Rays beat the Orioles 3-2 on June 8 during a very close game up until the last inning. The Rays took a 1-0 lead in the first inning and then took a 3-0 lead in the third inning. In the 5th inning, the Orioles started to come back, 3-2. With two outs, runners on second and third, Jack Darroch made a key play at first to stop the Orioles' rally. In the sixth inning, the top of the order of the Orioles were up, the first two batters hit singles to get runners on first and second. The next batter struck out and the second out was a fly ball that was caught by Dylan Lottinville. The third out was a grounder to Dean Taylor on a force out at second. It was a battle between Rays starting pitcher Brandon Wise and Orioles starting pitcher Drew Kunde.

Rays team members are Joshua Manela, Eddie Kudey, Brandon Wise, Garrett Stemmler, Daniel Bigelow, Nolan Bebarta, Coach Manny Manela, Dylan Lottinville, Dashel Rovner, Gregory Gibbert, Dean Taylor, Jack Darroch, Bobby Pedley, Manager Greg Gibbert, and Coach Clint Taylor.
