In the first night games since 2009 the #6 seed Gumballers upset the #1 seed DC Twits in the Division Championship Series to advance to their first World Series.
Jeff Nitto tossed two complete game shutouts, holding the Twits to just three hits for the series.
The Gumballers await the winner of the #2 seed Superman’s Wheelchair and #3 seed Canvassers game which will be Wednesday night.
The games were played at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds, Maryland.
The government shutdown has closed Gravelly Point, which forced the league to find alternate field accommodations. With alternate fields being needed anyway, that opened up the possibility of finding a facility with lighted fields to play games during the week.
