Final: D. Cordova vs. Fink
Danos and Fink entered Sunday’s Hall of Fame final with a 3-3 lifetime record against one another–the final would give Cordova his second R48 title and Fink his first.
Fink scored four points in the first inning in the final, surging to a 4-0 lead. Danos quickly tied the match at five, scoring with fly kills and blistering two-wall passes. Danos continued to outplay Fink, building a 13-5 lead and firmly in control of the match. Fink managed to rally to 9-14, but a Danos right-corner kill ended the game. Danos played even better in game two, giving Fink very few opportunities and executing his opportunities with both hands. The match was just a formality with Danos leading 12-5, and Danos wrapped up his second R48 title of the season with three more kills.
Danos won five matches in Tucson without dropping one game and not surrendering more than 11 points in any game, a truly dominant performance for the Mexican star.
