Scranton on the Verge of Title

The Scranton Yankees are on the verge of winning the International League's Governors' Cup trophy after downing the Durham Bulls, 1-0 in 13 innings last night. The win, which was the third straight playoff walk off win for the Yankees Triple-A affiliate, put Scranton up 2-0 in the series, which will resume on Friday night.

The Yankees hadn't come up with a hit in more than seven innings when Bernie Castro singled home Chris Stewart with the game winner. Ian Kennedy got into a number of jams, but was able to wiggle out of each of them.

Former Yankee Heath Phillips appeared in one inning for Durham and struck out the side with Juan Miranda, Shelley Duncan, and Ben Broussard being the victims.

Kei Igawa faces Jeff Niemann in game three.
