It was a hard-fought battle for both teams to make it this far. But as the saying goes, “to the victors go the spoils.” For the victorious Oakland Athletics, that meant the GAF Online Baseball League World Series trophy.
The Athletics took a 7-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies at O.co Coliseum, winning their 10th championship after taking the series 4-1.
“We’ve got grit” said Athletics second baseman Yairo Munoz, who was named MVP of the series. “We know how to win when we have to.”
The new titleholders completed the regular season with a first-place finish in the American League West Division and a 92-70 record.
After laying claim to the first 7 GOBL World Series Championships since the inaugural 2015 season, the NL has dropped the last 3. (NL 7 – AL 3)
