By Bobby Brockman



The Giants, who finished one game behind the Rockies in regular-season play, took two of three to claim the Major League championship.
On Monday, the Giants rolled 16-1 behind the pitching of Gavin Johnson and two hits each by Kameron Smith and Dawson Cole.
The Rockies triumphed 13-4 in game two on Tuesday with Blake Allen getting the mound win and three hits from Tristan Reed while John Orberson, Arren Hash, Allen, Dillon Whitaker and Charlie Pettigrew had two hits apiece. Orberson and Pettigrew homered for the Rockies.
In the if-necessary tilt  Thursday, the Giants won 6-2 as Cole, who also had two hits in game two, got the win and homered.
