The Toros won the 5th game of the 9 game series with an explosion of four runs in the seventh inning. Martin Maldanado (Brewers), Esteban German (Rangers), Ricardo Nanita, and Eduardo Nunez (Yankees) each had RBI for the Toros in this frame. The victory went to reliever Jairo Asencio (Braves) and Julio Manon got the save.
For the Estrellas, Eugelio de la Cruz got the loss, even though he gave up no earned runs in six innings. Andres Rodriguez and Argenis Reyes had RBI in a losing cause for the Estrellas.
The Toros won the title on their home field, and the atmosphere was second to none. The crowd was standing for most of the contest and it was extremely loud throughout. The great home fans even rushed the field at the end of the contest, something the Dominican Baseball Guy has never seen at a baseball game.

The Toros go on to the Caribbean Series to face the champions of the winter leagues in Mexico, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico. It takes place from February 2-7 in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
