Guam’s Big League All Stars went nine innings with the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas (CNMI) in a pitching duel between Guam’s Bill Quenga and CNMI’s Lancaster Secharmidal. Both teams went scoreless for eight innings. The CNMI scored two runs on a two-run home run in the top of the 9th. Guam came back in a two-out rally in the bottom of the 9th on a bases-loaded walk, and a two RBI single on the game winning hit by Nick Cruz to take the win, 3-2. Bill Quenga pitched nine innings for the win, while CNMI’s Bret Halstead took the loss. Despite the win, and finishing 2-1 in the 2nd round, Chinese Taipei wins the Championship after posting an undefeated record of 3-0 in both rounds.
