Karlskoga wins Swedish baseball championships
Karlskoga is the winner of the Swedish Baseball Championships for 2012.
The favorites, who also finished first in the league standings, defeated visitors Leksand Saturday 6-3 to take a third victory in the best of five series.
Karlskoga won both of last weekend’s away games at Leksand, 3-2 and 4-1. But Leksand prevented a sweep by fighting back to take Saturday’s first game 10-2.
In the opening round of the play-offs Leksand narrowly upset last year’s champions Stockholm, while Karlskoga easily defeated Sundbyberg.
