Hoos a Champion
Congratulations to THREE former Hoos on winning the Midwest League title. Andy Weber (who drove in three runs in the championship game), Caleb Knight and Derek Casey are all members of the South Bend Cubs, the Class-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs in South Bend, Ind. The squad downed the Clinton LumberKings 5-0 on Sunday to sweep the best-of-five series. South Bend ended with a 7-0 playoff record and won their last nine games of 2019 dating back to the final week of the regular season against Bowling Green.
Last week, Ernie Clement and the Columbus Clippers won the International League championship. Clement went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the finale over the Durham Bulls. The Clippers will now square-off against Pacific Coast League champion Sacramento in a one-game, winner-take-all Triple-A National Championship game tomorrow (Tuesday, Sept. 17) at 8pm ET in Memphis. In the meantime, watch the video of the final out celebration here.
