Jacobo's extra-inning blast lifts Barnstormer's to title
Gabe Jacobo, a veteran of seven minor league seasons, hit the game-winning home run in the 12th inning (his second of the game) to propel the Lancaster Barnstormers to their second Atlantic League Championship. Jacobo, who spent the first four years of his career with the Los Angeles Angels organization and the last three with the Toronto Blue Jays organization, has been grinding out a very solid career. He has never advanced past Double A, but sports a career .285 average and 84 career home runs. Before joining the Barnstormers, his first experience in independent baseball, the former 10th round pick out of California State University Sacramento, hit .146 in 35 games for the Jays' Double A affiliate, New Hampshire.
