Clippers win Governors’ Cup as IL champions again; tops Lehigh Valley 3 games to 1

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.

The International League selected Durham outfielder Brandon Guyer as their Batter of the Week for the period from June 13-19.

Guyer is the fourth member of the Bulls to win an IL weekly award this season (Alexander Torres, April 11-17; Justin Ruggiano, May 2-8; Felipe Lopez, May 16-22.

Guyer didn’t dominate any one category during the week, but he had very solid numbers in all stat categories to help the Bulls stay in the lead in the IL South Division.

In six games during the week, Guyer hit .409 with a double, triple and home run, 7 RBI’s (3rd in IL), six runs scored (Tied-1st), and a pair of stolen bases (Tied-2nd).

Guyer produced two three-hit games during the week, including a 3-for-5, 4-RBI, 3-run effort at Gwinnett.

Guyer has been one of the League’s best hitters this season, with the proof being his .323 average (5th in the IL), .540 slugging percentage (4th), and 47 runs scored (Tied-4th).

Guyer, 25, was the Chicago Cubs Minor League Player of the Year in 2010 with Double-A Tennessee. The Southern League All-Star was traded to Tampa Bay in the offseason as part of the trade involving Matt Garza.

Guyer is a native of West Chester, Pennsylvania.

The Columbus Clippers swept Durham when they came to Huntington Park over 10 days ago and the Bulls were trying to return the favor in North Carolina.

The Clippers had other ideas.

Jason Kipnis drew a bases-loaded walk to score Ezequiel Carrera in the top of the 10th inning and helped the Clippers to a 2-1 win over the Bulls.

The Clippers snapped a three-game losing streak.

Columbus’ Luis Valbuena went 1 for 3 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.

Durham pitcher Rob Delaney, who entered the game in the ninth, allowed four walks in 1.2 innings to suffer his first loss of the season.

Zach Putnam raised his record to 4-1 after pitching two scoreless innings.
