The Bay Area Toros won the Continental Baseball League title, sweeping its best-of-three championship series against the Texarkana Gunslingers. In the opener, Brian Barr and Jayson Rachuig matched each other for nine innings as each allowed one run. But Ben Burum drove in Donald Brown with a sac fly in the 12th for a 2-1 Bay Area win. The Toros had an easier time in the clincher, as righthander Kevin Cooper shut down Texarkana for a 9-3 win. The Toros won 17 of their last 19 regular season games before the championship sweep.
