Season 27 Wrap Up - Atlanta Repeats!

Atlanta is your Season 27 champion! 

The Season 27 World Series has concluded, and Atlanta came out on top 4 games to 2 in a rematch of last year's championship against Florida.  Atlanta came out of the gates strong, winning the first three games of the series.  Florida mounted a rally winning the next two games, but couldn't maintain their momentum when the series headed back to Atlanta for Game 6.  Atlanta defeated New York in 4 games in the DCS, and then went on to face arch rival Texas in the LCS, taking that series in 5 games. Enrique Garces was the leader of the offense in the postseason for Atlanta posting a .333 AVG, .958 OPS, and hitting 2 HR.  Atlanta only hit .235 as a team in the playoffs, but did pop 25 Home Runs in 15 games.  Their pitching was outstanding posting a 2.59 ERA with multiple-time Cy Young winners Thomas Hutchinson and Francisco Aramboles leading the way.

It was a great season for Florida as well, as they nabbed the NL's best record for the second season in a row with a phenomenal stretch run, and then beat out tough division rival Philadelphia in 4 games in the DCS, and then sweeping Santa Fe in the LCS.  It took Atlanta a few go-arounds in the playoffs before claiming the trophy, so Florida can certainly get there too.

Thanks everyone for a great Season 27, see you back soon for Season 28!
