lowswatphoto7 1 15

It was a dazzling end to a storybook season of near-perfection.

Lower Swatara Navy won the LPWH Baseball League's minors division championship – and it had to battle its way through most of Paxtonia to do it.

Navy beat Paxtonia's No. 4 team, 11-5 in the championship game on Friday, June 26 at Don Reisch Memorial Field in Paxtonia to claim the title.

To get to the finals, Navy eliminated two more Paxtonia teams in the playoffs – Lower Swatara bounced back from a 7-1 deficit to beat Paxtonia No. 5, 8-7, and dispatched Paxtonia No. 7, 13-3. Navy also defeated Penn Gardens Gold, 7-5 on its march to the championship.

Middletown was just getting used to success in the East Shore Twilight League when it failed to qualify for the playoffs last year.

It was a downer after three consecutive seasons in the postseason – including a league championship in 2010, Middletown's first since it won the league's regular-season crown – but lost in the postseason playoffs – in 1986.

The Brewers are hoping to prove that last year's sixth-place finish and 10-14 record are simply glitches.
