Congratulations to OPA - Knight Champs

Oak Park Apartments built an early lead behind starter Michael Obermaier and Aidan Molina (3 H, 4 RBI), but had to battle a comeback by Knight Division leaders Bump City to win 9-8 in an 8-inning championship game. After two lead changes, BC tied OPA in the bottom of the 7th frame and loaded the bases. OPA catcher Casey McCormick made a diving snag of a foul for the third out. After OPA scored in the 8th, OPA closer Peter Bade sealed the win.
