It was the last week of the baseball season, and in the Felidae Leage the Alleycats, the Bobcats, the Cougars, and the Domestics were all tied for the first place. It was decided that there would be a series of pla-off games in which each team would play one game with each of the other three teams; the team winning the most play-off games would win the pennant.

1.) The distribution of runs scored by each team during the play-off games was as follows (listed alphabetically according to the teams' home cities):

Sexton-City Team 1 - 3 - 7

Treble-City Team 1- 4 - 6

Ulster-City Team 2 - 3 - 6

Verdue-City Team 2 - 4 - 5

2.) Each team won a different number of play-off games.

3.) The score for each play-off game was different from that of any other play-off game

4.) The greatest difference in runs scored by two teams at any one game was 3 runs; this difference occurred only once when the team that lost the greatest number of play-off games lost by 3 runs.

5.) Two teams scored the same number of runs during the first round and two teams scored the same number of runs during the second round of the play-off games.

6.) During the last round the Alleycats scored the larger off number of runs, the Bobcats scored the smaller odd number of runs, the Cougars scored the larger even number of runs, and the Domestics scored the smaller even number of runs.

Which one of the four teams won the pennant? the Alleycats, the Bobcats, the Cougars, or the Domestics
