The Columbus Clippers have proven for the second year in a row that they are the kingpins in the International League.

The team was the 2010 IL champions and the National champions of Minor League Baseball.

In 2011, the Clippers beat the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, 4-1 in the deciding game in Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania to wrap up its second straight Governors’ Cup title, 3 games to 1 and a return trip to the Triple-A national championship game to play the Pacific Coast League winner in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Tuesday.

The architect of this domination is the parent Cleveland Indians, but the man steering the ship is manager Mike Sarbaugh, who also was a good manager while running the Double-A Akron Aeros.

The Clippers won an IL-best 88 games in the regular season despite overcoming 183 player moves involving them, Cleveland and Akron. They won the IL West Division by 12 gaves over the Indianapolis Indians. They beat Durham and Lehigh Valley, two quality teams in the IL playoffs. It goes to show everybody that the Indians farm system is loaded with talent.

Winning the decisive game, was pitcher Paolo Espino, who pitched seven innings, allowing four hits and one run, a homer by Brandon Moss, and struck out five. His pitching followed the strong starts of fellow hurlers Mitch Talbot and Joe Martinez in games 2 and 3 respectively.
