While the New York Yankees are currently facing the reality that they won’t make the postseason, the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are close to being the kings of Minor League Baseball.
The RailRiders defeated the Atlanta Braves Triple-A affiliate, the Gwinnett Braves, in a 3-1 series win to obtain the 2016 Governors’ Cup.
Jake Cave was presented with the Most Valuable Player Award, going 4-for-13 with two runs scored, three RBI, a double and a home run.
The RailRiders will take on the winner of the Pacific Coast League for the title; the El Paso Chihuahua’s are ahead in the series against the Oklahoma City Dodgers 2-1 in a best-of-five.
The winner-take-all game will air on Tuesday September 20 at 8:05 p.m., and the game will air on NBC Sports Network.
