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


(courtesy of the International League)

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 Philadelphia Phillies have hired Ryne Sandberg to manage their Triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Almost 29 years ago, the Phillies traded Sandberg to the Chicago Cubs in possibly the most lopsided and most-un-popular trade in Philadelphia sports history.

Sandberg spent the past four years as a manager in the Cubs minor league system.

Some fans and even the Chicago media felt that Sandberg should’ve been selected as the new Cubs manager, but the team felt they owed Mike Quade the job after the team played very well the last 37 games while he was the interim manager. Rumors had it that Sandberg felt snubbed and overlooked and wanted out of the organization.
