SMITHSBURG -- The Hagerstown Braves started out Monday night playing the final inning of Sunday's suspended Game 5 of the Blue Ridge Adult League championship series and held on for a 6-0 win over the Brunswick Orioles.
But the Orioles finished off the night -- and the Braves -- with a 10-5 victory in the regularly scheduled Game 6 to win the best-of-7 series, four games to two.
It's Brunswick's eighth straight Blue Ridge title.
"We feel it is tradition," Brunswick manager Roger Dawson said.
"We don't want to be knocked down off of our post. I think our guys have a lot of pride in winning this league. We played shorthanded tonight. I had a few players that played out of position and we still won the game."
"They are defending champions for a reason," Hagerstown manager Mike Kipe said. "They know how to win games to get championships."
