Surenos Get 2nd Straight Series

Oakland used a big 5-run 8th inning to come from behind and defeat Jackson, 8-3 in Game 6. The win gave Oakland its second straight World Series.

The Holes had jumped on Surenos ace Gary Ramsay for 3 runs in the first (courtesy of homers by Manzanillo and Perisho), and Carlos Ramirez and Glenn Benson held Oakland scoreless through 6. But the Surenos scratched out a run in the 7th and blew it open in the 8th (highlighted by a Rivera 2-run double and Mitch Hall's 2-run homer). They added a pair in the 9th, and Ramsay & co. were near-flawless after the 1st.

Oakland joins Memphis (Seasons 10 and 11 as Charleston Apologists) and Jackson (Seasons 12 and 13) among back-to-back WS winners in Belle. It also moves into sole possession of 2nd place on the list of total championships with 3 (Memphis has 4 as Charleston).
