One for the books: Jemile Weeks' two-out, two-run double in the ninth inning Wednesday lifted the visiting River Cats to a 4-3 win over Colorado Springs and to their record sixth straight Pacific Coast League division championship. The Cats' postseason berth is their 11th in the franchise's 13 seasons.
Quotable: Said River Cats general manager Jeff Savage: "This accomplishment speaks to the dedication and professionalism of the Oakland Athletics front office, including general manager Billy Beane, farm director Keith Lieppman and the entire A's player development staff. I am so happy for manager Darren Bush and his coaching staff, all of the River Cats players, and our loyal fans."
