    DK defeats BW in Hammer of the Gods Finals.

    In a controversial Game 5 finish, in which the power of the Nintendo went out in the bottom of the 11th, right before the winning run was to cross the plate, Dennis Kim prevails with a 4 games to 1 championship victory versus Brandon Wright. Despite protests from the Wright camp, disputing the validity of the final score, the majority decision ruled in favor of DK. The winning run would have scored had the power not inadvertanly been shut down. (The captures to the right show BW dropping his controller right before the power outage, which effectively concedes the game, since there would be no way to throw any runners out without the controller).

    Reggie Jackson hit a grand-slam in the top of the 11th of Game 3, that put the Angels ahdead of the Tiger 5-1 and put DK ahead 2 games to 1. DK took Game 4 by and identical score 5-1, hitting 4 home runs with CA.

    Game 5 was a close one throughout. The bullpen proved to be crucial for Kim, since he had King throwing at 60 mph in the 10th & 11th, where BW Corbett dipped down into the 40s. The lack of velocity would cost BW the game in the 11th.

  • Game 1 DT def CA (4-2) DK
  • Game 2 CA def DT (5-2) BW
  • Game 3 CA def DT (5-1) DK (11 inn)
  • Game 4 CA def DT (5-1) DK
  • Game 5 DT def CA (5-4) DK wins series and Hammer of the Gods Cup! (11 inn)


  • Dennis Kim wins his third Hammer of the Gods Cup
