Quad Cities River Bandits
Players, coaches, and staff are giddy after the Bandits win the High A Central championship.

The Quad Cities River Bandits are the big winners in their first season as an affiliate of the Kansas City Royals.

On Sunday night at Modern Woodmen Park, the home team ended the High-A post-season by shutting out the Cedar Rapids Kernels, 5-to-0.

The Quad Cities team forced the final game of the series on Saturday when Logan Porter hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth for a 2-to-1 Bandits' win. That tied the series at 4-all.
