River City Rascals go out on top, win Frontier League Championship

The River City Rascals might be set to fold at the end of the season, but they made sure the franchise went out on top. They're the 2019 Frontier League champions!

The River City Rascals are the 2019 Frontier League champions after defeating the Florence Freedom 7-5 in Game 5 of the championship series on Monday night.

The Rascals exploded for a six run seventh inning to take the lead over the Freedom, and were able to hang on for the title.

This is the second title the franchise has won since they moved to O'Fallon, after winning the championship in 2010.
