Congratulations to the Ft. Wayne Tin Caps on their Midwest League Championship!
The Tin Caps are the Padres Low A farm team.
Led by 2008 1st round pick Jaff Decker and starting pitcher Michael Watt, the Tin Caps won game three to complete a sweep of the championship series over the Burlington (VT) Bees.
Decker went 3 for 5 including a 2 run home run in the 5th and scored a run.
Watt went 5 1/3 innings allowing 3 runs, only 1 earned, on 4 hits while striking out 2.
Closer Brad Brach pitched a perfect 9th and struck out 2 for his 3rd save of the post season.
The win was the Tin Caps 101st of the season, best in professional baseball.
