Earlier today, the DSL Giants beat the DSL Twins, 2-1, to finish off a three game sweep in the Dominican Summer League championship series.
All three games were tightly contested, low-scoring affairs – 4-3, 3-1, 2-1. In the first, the Giants came from behind to win in extra innings; in the final two, they scored in the eighth inning to break a 1-1 tie.
If the box scores are to be believed, all three games also featured a strange occurrence in which the pitcher threw back-to-back wild pitches that allowed a base-runner to advance twice. It happened for the Twins in Game One and the Giants in Games Two and Three, predictably resulting in a run for the offense each time.
Lorenzo Mendoza, a perfect 8-0 in the regular season, went 2-0 in the postseason, including a complete game four-hitter to clinch the championship.
