Independent Baseball Insider By Bob Wirz Vol. 12, No. 27, September 11, 2014

Best-of-seven playoff series are virtually unheard of in Independent Baseball, but the Can-Am League goes that route, and could easily argue the merits because of the storylines that developed.

The Rockland Boulders came from a 2-0 deficit to outlast the New Jersey Jackals in six games to give Manager of the Year Jamie Keefe (pictured) his first end-of-season championship.

For the first time in their history, the Rockland Boulders are the champions of the Can-Am League. Thanks to a clutch pitching performance by starter Bo Budkevics (pictured) and back-to-back home runs in the second inning, Rockland defeated the New Jersey Jackals in game six, 4-0.

Budkevics tossed seven shutout innings to help the Boulders win their fourth-straight game and capture the title.

The Rockland Boulders are on a roll and have taken a 3-2 lead in the Can-Am League championship series against the New Jersey Jackals. Rockland rode a seven-run first inning to a 14-4 win in game five at Provident Bank Park and is now one win away from its first Can-Am championship.

Richard Salazar (pictured) earned the win. He pitched eight innings and only allowed two runs.

The ending to game four may not have been pretty, but it was good enough for Rockland to tie the Can-Am League championship series against the New Jersey Jackals at two games apiece. The Boulders pulled off an 8-7 victory in 10 innings thanks to a walk-off wild pitch.

Junior Arrojo (pictured) became the accidental hero for the Boulders in the 10th when he was hit by a pitch and scored the winning run on two wild pitches during the same at-bat.

Rockland needed some late-inning heroics from Matt Nandin (pictured), but the Boulders prevailed in game three of the Can-Am League championship series against the New Jersey Jackals, 5-4.

Nandin hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning after Carlos Guzman had tied the game with a single in the eighth. New Jersey now leads the Can-Am League championship series, 2-1.

The New Jersey Jackals have to be pleased with their start to the 2014 Can-Am League championship series. New Jersey defeated the Rockland Boulders 3-2 in game two and the Jackals now hold a 2-0 lead in the series.

Jon Talley (pictured) delivered the big blow for New Jersey with a go-ahead, RBI single in the bottom of the sixth inning. Salvador Sanchez nailed down the save for the second straight night.
