The Red Sox faced the Dodgers for the Majors championship. Sox starting pitcher Nate Gentry blasted a solo home run and hit an RBI double, and Blake Snedeker singled in two runs in the fifth.
But the Dodgers staged a stunning comeback in the sixth to take the championship. Denzale Burton led off with a double, then Jared Trader doubled in two runs. Keenan Neu also singled in a run, and Robbie Carling doubled in another as the Dodgers batted around in the inning.

The Angels won a close game over the first half-champion Pirates for the championship.
Angels starting pitcher Julian Auldridge struck out seven in three innings.
In the second, Marcus Khokar scored on an Aidan Murphy single. Then Auldridge singled in Murphy, and the Angels were on the board. In the fourth, Jacob Auldridge and Khokar singled, and Max Crandall doubled in Auldridge before Liam Reilly sacrificed in Khokar.
The Pirates scored in the fifth when Ballard Greedy singled in Jordan Yanowitz.
