By Dave Sobieraj 07/29/2018, 11:30pm PDT

FULLERTON -- The Long Beach Legends defeated the Ventura County Pirates 5-2 in Game 2 of the SBL Championship Series at Cal State Fullerton Sunday afternoon.

The win gives the Legends a sweep and  the championship in their first season in the Sunset League.

The Legends got off to another good start, plating two runs in the first, but the Pirates answered with two in the second to tie it up.

The next three frames were scoreless until the 6th inning when the Legends scratched out one to grab a 3-2 lead.

They got two much needed insurance runs in the top of the 9th on a two-run jack by JT Navarro. He finished with two hits, three RBI and scored two runs.

Riley Livingston and Colton Hector each added one RBI.

Hunter Konechy-Pena had two hits and one RBI for the Pirates. Cole Kriger also ripped in an RBI.
