Haerther tied a team record and set a career high with seven RBIs as the Owlz captured their third championship in five years Saturday, holding on for a 13-10 triumph over the Missoula Osprey. The Owlz 21-year-old third baseman faced former UCLA teammate Charles Brewer and slugged a three-run homer in the first inning. Missoula tied it in the bottom half, but Haerther hit an RBI single in the third.
Brewer was gone by the fifth, when Haerther's three-run double highlighted a six-run outburst that extended Orem's lead to 11-3. The cushion was up to 13-4 heading to the bottom of the ninth, but the Osprey did not go quietly. They strung together four hits off David Carpenter to close within three runs and had the potential tying run on deck when Jae Yun Kim struck out to end the game.

After losing the opening game of the Finals at home, Orem stayed alive Friday by hitting a league playoff-record six homers, including two from catcher Carlos Ramirez.

The title capped a remarkable stretch run for the Owlz, who went 31-7 to run away with the second-half South Division title, then swept Ogden in the semifinals.
Love to hear what you think!
