Two teams remain in the hunt for the 2022 Santa Clara baseball league title. The Portage Padres and the Plumas Pirates.
The best of three championship finals start tonight and game one sees the Padres host the Pirates, 7pm at Rotary Republic Park. Game 2 will be tomorrow night in Plumas.
The Padres needed all three games to defeat Carberry in the semi-finals while the Pirates took out Neepawa with two straight wins. In the regular season the Pirates won both meetings between the squads, 13-4 and 3-2.
Portage finished 4th overall in the regular season at 4-3-1 while Plumas had to win a play-in game just to make the playoffs after finishing 5th at 4-4.
The Padres last won the league in 2018 while the last time the Pirates were champs was 2001.
