Stockholm Repeats as Swedish Champions

Stockholm has won the Swedish Baseball championships for the second year in a row.

Stockholm defeated home team Tranås in the third and final game of the best-of-three series 6-5. The two teams split Saturday’s doubleheader.

Stockholm, which also won the Swedish Elite Division title last year, finished second to Tranås in this year’s league play.

The Swedish Baseball Federation website reports that Stockholm took an early 6-2 lead. Tranås closed to 6-5 in the 7th inning off Stockholm starter Niklas Eriksson. Joakim Claesson, who started and pitched 7 innings in the opening game Saturday, closed the door, pitching the 8th and 9th innings.

Joakim Claesson was chosen as the Most Valuable Player of the finals.
