Jedi Win Championship

The trilogy is complete, and it’s the Return of the Jedi in the Union League. Having defeated the San Juan Storm 4 games to 1, the Jedi are now the first team in ULB history to win the Union Cup three times. It was a hard road, but with Nelson Gil Santovenia Jr on the mound for Game Five, the result was never really in doubt. The Jedi had built up a 9-0 lead when Santovenia Jr let up his first run in 5th, then allowed three more in the 6th. The score would stay that way until the Jedi added 2 more runs in the 9th to secure an 11-4 victory and celebrated a 3rd championship in Puerto Rico.

Troy Tulowitzki was named Union Cup MVP after hitting .500 with 11 hits and 3 home runs to go long with his 9 runs batted in.
