Fittingly, Gio Brusa had the game’s biggest hit. The St. Mary’s Rams senior outfielder lined a two-out, 3-2 offering from Franklin ace Josh Pigg into left-center to drive in two runs in the fifth inning and turn a 3-1 game into a 5-1 game. The Rams held on to beat the Wildcats 8-2 on Saturday at Pacific’s Klein Family Field and secure a sweep of the best-of-three Sac-Joaquin Section Division I championship series.

St. Mary’s (27-6), ranked No. 33 nationally by ESPN and No. 2 among the state’s Division I schools by Cal-Hi Sports, is just the second school in section history to win three consecutive Division I titles. Elk Grove won three in a row from 2005 to 2007. Brusa, the Rams’ designated hitter as a sophomore, became the first player to start for three consecutive Division I championship teams. He finished 2-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and four RBI.
