Buffalo battles back to take it all in Season 11!

That's a wrap on Season 11, and it ended in a thrilling World Series between Buffalo and New Britain that saw Buffalo come back from a 3-0 deficit in the series, and then take Game 7 in a commanding fashion, winning 12-0.  Buffalo headed into the World Series after a surprising upset over Oklahoma City in the NLCS, who had won two out of the last three World Series and was a dominant #1 team in the world all year, winning 120 games.   It looked liked the magic was over, as they dropped the first three games of the World Series, but mounted an epic comeback with solid hitting, which had eluded them much of the year, and great pitching, which was their trademark all year.  In fact, three of the last four games in the series were shutouts by Buffalo.  In the midst of all the great pitching performances, Jeremy Randall was leading the offense by getting on base and launching 6 bombs in the playoffs.

The lack of offense by New Britain in the last four games was puzzling, as they were one of the top offensive teams in the league.  They look poised to be solid again next season, and should regroup from a tough loss to be one of the AL's top teams again.

That's it for Season 11, we'll be back after a hopefully quick rollover for Season 12.  In the meantime, spread the word about the great world that Kenny Powers is, and let your friends, family, coworkers, etc, know there's a limited time opportunity to join in on the fun!   See you next season!
