Miguel Cabrera named MVP

Get ready Fort Lauderdale… it’s time to raise that fifth banner.

Kirby Puckett and George Sisler each had two hits and two RBI to lead the Fort Lauderdale Flash over the Golden Glovers 11-4 in Game 6 of the World Series, giving the Flash their fifth MicroLeague World Championship in 11 seasons.

Meanwhile, it was another disappointing finish for the Glovers as they are now 2-5 in seven World Series appearances.

Joe Sewell and Marcus Giles each added three hits as the Flash pounded out 15 hits and finally beating up Sal Gonzalez for 10 hits and five earned runs in six innings. Chris Sale pitched 8 2/3 innings with 12 strikeouts to get the win, while Tom Wilhelmsen got Darin Darst to strike out for the game’s final out.

The Flash hit .314 (82-for-261) in the World Series and was led by World Series MVP Miguel Cabrera, who hit .357 with a series leading 3 HR and 9 RBI. Seven of the Flash’s nine hitters in the lineup hit at least .300.

The Glovers starters took a beating, going 0-3 with a 8.51 ERA. They allowed a staggering 50 hits in 24 1/3 innings.
