Lakewood Blue Claws Win League Championship

The Lakewood Blue Claws won their second consecutive South Atlantic League Championship on Saturday. The Phillies Single A affiliate beat the Greenville Drive by a score of 4-2 to take the best-of-five series in Game Four and become the first team in SAL history to win the first half, second half, and league title.

The Claws were led by Sebastian Valle (catcher) who smacked a three-run home run in the fifth inning – his third homer of the series. Righty Jonathan Pettibone gave up two runs over five innings to earn the win, while Josh Zeid tossed four scoreless innings in relief for the save.
