For the third time in team history, the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes are California League champions.
The Quakes completed a three-game sweep on Sept. 14 in front of more than 2,400 fans, defeating the Visalia Rawhide by a score of 9-1 at LoanMart Field.
Donovan Casey had four hits and drove in four runs and series MVP Cristian Santana homered for the second straight game as the Quakes clinched their second title in four years.
Santana's homer was complimented by Nick Yarnall, Casey and Jeren Kendall, who all went deep for the high-powered Rancho offense, which led the league in home runs in the regular season with a franchise record 202.
Rancho Cucamonga starter Isaac Anderson (1-0) was superb in the clincher, allowing just one hit over six scoreless innings, striking out six in earning the win.
Dodger rehabbers John Axford, Tony Cingrani and Yimi Garcia combined for 2 2/3 innings, before Parker Curry, who starred in the Division Series in Lancaster and earned the game-one win in Visalia, got the last out, starting the first celebration of a championship in their home ballpark since 1994, when the Quakes beat the Modesto A's at The Epicenter.
The title is the second in the Dodgers/Quakes partnership, with the other coming in 2015, when the Quakes swept the San Jose Giants.
