In Saturday's Blue Division championship game featured the unblemished Warriors vs. a very solid Shakers club.  The top seeded "Warriors" led by Coaches Phiil Roof and rookie skipper, Matt LeCroy.  In a game worthy of it's billing as the top division championship, both teams traded punches like two heavyweight boxers. Mark Phelps was the starting pitcher for the Shakers and relieved in the fourth inning by rookie, Nick Heitkamp.  Dave Hinnenkamp was the Warriors starter and went the first five innings. After 4 1/2 innings the Warriors found themselves tied with the Shakers.  In the bottom of the fifth, rookie Tony Bongard delivered a two RBI double to the gap that provided the lead for the Warriors. This year's Over 50 MVP, Randy Lott came on in the top of the 6th for the Warriors and the traditionally stingy Lott was touched for a run by the Shakers in their half of the 6th, making it a one run game again.  Randy was able to set the Shakers down in order in the seventh to preserve the win, the championship and an unbeaten record for the Warriors, 4-3.   to our knowledge, this is the first time in recent Twins Camp history that a team has gone through the entire week without a loss.  The victorious and undefeated Warriors's squad included:
