A Champion In Ohio As Clippers Win Triple-A National Title

The Columbus Clippers have done it again.

↵

The Indians' Triple-A farm club, after winning the Governors' Cup that signifies the championship of the International League, went one better last night, winning the Triple-A national title with an 8-3 victory over the Omaha Storm Chasers of the Pacific Coast League in Albuquerque, New Mexcico.

↵

It was the second straight year that the Clippers have won the national title for the highest tier of the minor leagues.

↵

Joe Martinez went seven innings to win his third game of the postseason, while Luke Carlin's 3-run homer tied the game in the second, and Jared Goedert put Columbus ahead to stay with a third-inning double.

↵

All of this despite an astonishing 186 transactions this year, due to the plethora of injuries for the parent club.

(Again) congratulations Clippers!
