Bad News Ems Balk-Off for the NWL Championship

September 12, 2018 7:30 PM ET

It could not have happened any other way, let's be honest with ourselves. The worst overall record in the Northwest League. No winning streak of 3 or more games at any point during the regular season. And the exclamation point to finish the season? A walk-off balk call to send the Ems to a 3-2 win in Game 3 of the NWL Championship Series to capture the title, their 5th playoff win in a row to finish their undefeated postseason run, sweeping the Indians in the finals 3 games-to-none.
