3 Cheers Pub wins Sr. Canadian national fast pitch championship
The three-peat is complete for 3 Cheers Pub.
The St. John’s, N.L., squad defeated city rivals the Kelly’s Pub Bulldogs 8-1 Sunday in Charlottetown in the Canadian senior men’s fast pitch championship game.
“That’s what we came here to do and that’s what we accomplished,” said ace Sean Cleary.
He was named the championship round MVP after allowing one run in winning all three games. He had 33 strikeouts and a 0.41 ERA in 17 innings.
3 Cheers Pub scored in each of the five innings en route to Sunday’s victory.
