Astros win the Championship

As the Astros and Royals arrived at Wishing Well on Sunday Sept. 23 there was literally no tomorrow. Whether the Championship finals series ended with game 4 or was extended to a game 5, SABL baseball was poised to end its season.

After winning game 1 in a big way, the Royals had lost games 2 and 3 by a total score of 18-6 and faced the unenviable proposition of needing to sweep the Sunday doubleheader to win the series. So daunting was the task before the Royals that their cooler contained not a single bottle of champagne, the way sports championships are traditionally toasted.

For many Cinderella teams, just getting there is a battle won and often the clock strikes midnight. Both the Dragons (the Astros semi-final opponent) and the Royals upset higher ranked teams to get as far as they did. The Astros, on the other hand, were playing with confidence and hoping for a game 4 victory to secure the 2007 Championship and avoid a series deciding 5th game.

Sohan "The Legendary Guyanese M.V.P." Singh pitched a gem in game 4, giving up just a single run and striking out 13 Royals in a complete game 7-1 series clinching Astros win.

Sohan also opened the scoring for the Astros hitting a long home run to left center in the second inning. The runs were spread out for the Astros as the most scored in the game in any inning were two showing that the team could win with the big inning (8 runs in the 7th inning of game 2) or by chipping away and building a lead (game 4, the Astros scored either one or two runs in 5 of the 7 innings).

If Las Vegas odds-makers were handicapping the playoffs, the likeliest outcome was what transpired in the end as the Astros had the most wins during the regualr season (a record-tying 24), the most runs scored (269, 9 ahead of the Psychos at 260) and the least runs against (134 with the Psychos again next best at 158).

The 2007 SABL Championship was the 4th in team history and first since 2003. They also won in 1998 as the Pirates, a team they retired as Champions to become the Astros and in 1999, their initial year playing as the Astros.

Overall in 2007, the SABL had what could arguably be called its most successful season with four teams ending up with between 19 and 24 wins (the Psychos, Royals, Reds and Astros) and another four teams finishing with between 12 and 15 wins (a much-improved Yankees team, the Jays, the Red Sox in a good opening season and the Dragons who ended up going to the semi-finals).
