After getting knocked down to the loser's bracket early in the playoffs it looked all but certain that Burke Heat's reign of Kent Rec. Slowpitch dominance would be coming to an end. But a huge come from behind victory over Forrest Signs in the semi's and an all out rout of Healy's in the first game of the championship gave them life in a winner-take all final matchup for the title.
Healy's, lead by the masterful pitching of knuckle-baller Rob Webb, got off to a hot start in the rubber match, putting up seven and blanking Burke's over the first three innings. But the equally savvy hurler Chris Robilotta, backed by strong defense from outfielders Joe Gasperini and Joe Esposito, slowly quieted the Healy's bats, opening the door for yet another Burke comeback. The down-to-the wire battle would ultimately come to an end with Burke's taking a narrow lead in the bottom of the sixth and holding onto it in the seventh to take their second straight Spring/Summer title and third in the last four Kent Rec. Slowpitch seasons.
Congrats to both teams on an awesome run and a big thank you to all 10 teams on making the 2015 Spring/Summer season a great one!
