A's Win Championship Final

The A's outpaced the Angels from the start in the final game of the championship round. Yuki Kawahara went 3-4, 2B, 3B, R, 4 RBI, SB, SF. Kai Westring also tore up the bases with a double and triple, and Brent Perzentka continued his torrid day by going 3-4, 2 R, RBI. A's starter Max Sellman set the tone early, continuing to pitch from his complete game earlier in the day. Sellman threw three shutout innings before giving way to reliever Andrew Wolfe who allowed no hits in 4 IP to finish the combined 2-hitter.

The Angels were fueled by strong pitching, defense, and hitting during their postseason run. They were the first team under the current playoff format to win their play-in round and hand losses to the #1 and #2 seeds en route to the championship round.

The A's used a similar formula of playing all three phases to achieve the best regular season record and earn the #1 seed. In the playoffs, they soundly defeated the #6 Orioles, fought off the #2 Banditos, and ultimately took two of three against the #4 Angels to win the Championship.
