David Huff earned the win for the Clippers, pitching six innings. He gave up all six runs on seven hits and struck out six. The bullpen work of Zach Putnam, Josh Judy and Vinnie Pestano followed Huff and shut down Tacoma.

Columbus knocked out 19 hits, compared to nine for the Rainiers. Jason Kipnis and Josh Rodriguez joined Jerad Head in the three-hit club, and five other Columbus starters had two hits.

The win ends a strong postseason for the Clippers, who struggled in the final weeks of the regular season and advanced to the IL playoffs as the wild card team, then dominated Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Durham to win the franchise’s first Governors’ Cup in 14 years.

A nationally-television audience saw how good the Columbus Clippers are and they are Triple-A Champions!
