Then the Bombers faced a tough matchup against the St. Johns Deadly Sins in the league final.

In the bottom of the fifth in game one, the Bombers were winning 2-1, but when Maureo Salcido hit a two-run blast, that propelled the Bombers forward to a 4-2 victory. In-game two, 27-year-old catcher Reynaldo Pitcher was the star of the show. With 100 power, there was no holding Pitcher back. In the top of the 4th, Pitcher got the Bombers on board with a home run to tie the game at one. But with a tied game in the 6th, Pitcher hit a two-run blast that put the Bombers on top. But Pitcher wasn't done there, Pitcher got a clutch single in the top half of the 7th to put the Bombers on top, 6-5.

The teams then packed up and went to Honolulu for the site of games three and four. The Bombers came out swinging with a two-run inning, but Shimakaze got two right back. But in the top of the second, the Bombers got another five-run inning with the help of another home run by Maureo Salcido. That lead held and the Bombers were leading the series, 2-1. In the top of the fourth in game four, who else but Reynaldo Pitcher to open the score for the Bombers, Shimakaze got one in the bottom of the fifth to tie it up.
