Yanks steamroll to first Cup crown
DURHAM, N.C. – This time, it wasn’t even close.
After the first three games of the Governors’ Cup Finals were decided in the final at-bat, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees ran away with a 20-2 rout of the Durham Bulls on Friday to claim their first championship in front of 3,374 fans at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
“It’s special, not only for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and the fan base and everybody there, but for some of these guys this is their first opportunity to win a championship,” Yankees manager Dave Miley said. “This is just a great feeling tonight.”
