Oakland completed its comeback from down 2-0, knocking off Sioux Falls in Game 5, 6-1. Gary Ramsay got his second win of the series with 5 innings of 1-hit ball, and William Kwon knocked in 3 for the top-seeded Surenos.
In the other NL pairing, Syracuse easily handled Austin in 4, shutting out the Chaloupas twice behind Brian Nakajim and Norm Rose.
Jackson ended Cincinnati's season with an 8-1 win in Game 4. Barry Carew allowed just 2 hits over 7 innings for his second win in the series; Burns and Perez homered.
This will be the 5th straight Katanas vs. Holes ALCS (Cleveland advanced in Seasons 10 and 11; Jackson prevailed in Seasons 12 and 13 enroute to their back-to-back WS wins).
The Oakland-Syracuse NLCS is a repeat of last year, with Oakland making their thrid straight visit.
