Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders win the Triple-A National Championship


The minor league season came to an end last night the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders claimed the Triple-A National Championship with a 3-1 win against the El Paso Chihuahuas in Memphis. The Railriders are the Yankees’ top farm team. The Chihuahuas are the top minor league club for the Padres.

Chris Parmelee hit a three-run home run in the first inning for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Jordan Montgomery allowed one run through six innings and the bullpen — led by Phil Coke of all people — shut down El Paso from there.
