Against Soledad, the Brewers received timely hitting from Daniel Peterson, Jake Bourdet, Mathieu Morin and Kaleb Guttierez.
They jumped out to a 2-0 lead following the first inning, too, and although the game remained close for the next three frames, the Brewers opened up their cushion in the home half of the fifth behind five more runs.
Other members of the team include Kalvin Guttierez, Isiah Hernandez, Brenden Nino, Bryce Perino, Samual Smallwood and Maththew Woods.
The Brewers, who were coached by Mike Nino, John Morin, Eddie Guttierez and Mitch Bourdet, finish the season as the Triple-A TOC champions after having rattled off eight straight victories, including four in a row during TOC play.
