Palau fell short to Guam as they took home the glory in the 2017 Micronesian Classic Goodwill Baseball Tournament Championship at Paseo Stadium in Hagåtña on Sunday.
After five innings both teams were scoreless until Palau scored in the bottom of the sixth.
But Guam answered right back in the next inning as Shon Muna Jr. scored off a wild pitch to tie it up 1-1. Guam scored again off a wild pitch before a Carl Quintanilla RBI single scored BJ Baladjia to put Guam in the lead at 3-1.
Neither team was able to score in the eighth inning, but Guam racked up another eight runs to win the game. Congratulations to both teams especially our true champions who were able to make it this far.
