Finals

Abreu would bat first. After getting 6 outs and 7 homers, Abreu knocks the next 4 out for 11. His bat goes silent as the next 4 pitches were all outs. That set the stage for the home town slugger (Gallo) to take a shot at the crown. Gallo starts out could pulling 5 balls foul down the line and not hitting his first home run until 6 outs are in the books. He would rage a come back late as he homers 4 times in a row, but falls short with only 7 total. Jose Abreu is the winner!
