Congratulations to the Nationals for advancing with a 7-5 win in a well played game by both the Mariners and Nationals. Both teams played outstanding defense throughout the game. The Mariners threatened with a 1 out bases loaded rally in the top of the sixth, but the Nationals held strong with a 2 strikeout performance by Gavin Covell in the closer spot.
The Brewers and Rockies also played a very tight game, with the Brewers advancing with a 3-2 victory.
The 2014 Minor League Championship Game was a well played game by both the Brewers and Nationals. The Nationals raced out to a 8-1 lead after 2 innings, but the Brewers roared back closing the gap to 8-6. The Brewers held the Nationals in check with 2 great defensive double plays, but the 1-9 batting order of the Nationals with everyone contributing gave them a 15-9 win to capture the 2014 Minors Championship.
