Clippers enjoyed wild ride to Triple-A title
Columbus entered the IL Playoffs as the wild card but cruised to the Governors' Cup title by outscoring its opponents 59-24 in eight games, then beat Tacoma in the Triple-A Championship. The Rainiers swept Memphis, which had posted the best record in the PCL, in three straight games to win their first championship since 2001. At 88-55, Durham had the best record in Triple-A, while Iowa tied Memphis for the top mark in the PCL but missed the playoffs on a tiebreaker.

Altoona threw a Curve at Eastern League
Altoona, which had the Minors' best record for much of the first half of the season, captured its first Eastern League title by topping Trenton, which posted the circuit's best record at 83-59. Tennessee (which went 86-53, best in Double-A) and Jacksonville won their divisions in both halves of the Southern League season, with the Suns beating the Smokies in the finals for the second straight year. Northwest Arkansas claimed the Texas League North in both halves of the season and used its potent offense -- the top batting average in Double-A at .291 -- to win its first league championship.

Repeat Giants among top Class A Advanced teams
A pair of repeat champions highlighted the Class A Advanced season, with Tampa beating Charlotte for the second straight year in the Florida State League and San Jose claiming back-to-back crowns in the California League. Winston-Salem cruised to a pair of division titles and the best record in Class A Advanced (81-58) but fell to a red-hot Potomac team in the Mills Cup Finals. Lake Elsinore posted a remarkable 48-22 record on the road en route to the best mark in the Cal League regular season.

Captains found Midwest success in first season
The Great Lakes Loons compiled the Minor Leagues' best regular-season record, going 90-49, but were upset in the second round of the Midwest League playoffs by upstart Lake County, which won the title in its first year in the league. Quad Cities went 83-55 to claim the Midwest Western Division. Augusta recorded the best record in the Sally League's Southern Division but won neither half of the season and missed the playoffs. Lakewood won its second straight South Atlantic League title and became the first team ever to do so after winning its division in both halves of the season.

New York-Penn finals upset made Tri-City top 'Cats
The Brooklyn Cyclones led all short-season teams with a 51-24 record -- including a 30-8 mark at home -- but were upset by the Tri-City ValleyCats in the New York-Penn League Finals. Johnson City compiled the best record in the Appy League and won all four of its playoff games by a combined score of 41-10 en route to its first title in 34 years. In the Northwest League, Everett posted the circuit's top record and won its first championship since 1985. Helena stunned double division winners Great Falls and Ogden in the Pioneer League playoffs to claim its first crown since 1996.
