Jeff Marquez went six innings for the win, allowing one run. Jason Jones finished up with three perfect innings of relief. Reegie Corona, Austin Jackson, P.J. Pilittere and Kevin Russo drove in the runs.

Mike Ashmore, who has done a great job covering the Thunder all season, has all the details on his blog.

That’s two minor-league titles for the Yankees. Good job by Mark Newman and his staff.

Scranton will face Sacramento in the Triple-A Bricktown Showdown on Tuesday in Oklahoma City.
