Durham wins International League championship

John Jaso doubled home Elliot Johnson in the 12th inning to give the Durham Bulls a 3-2 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and an International League championship series sweep.

Calvin Medlock picked up the win with two innings of shutout relief, while starter Jason Cromer had his second quality start of the postseason. He allowed two runs on four hits and four walks in six innings.

The Bulls overcame a 2-0 deficit when Desmond Jennings hit a two-run single with two outs in the eighth inning. It's Durham's third title in eight years.

(Every player mentioned is a former Biscuit.)

Durham will play Tuesday in the one-game Triple-A championship in Oklahoma City. The Bulls will face the Pacific Coast League champion. Memphis has a 2-0 lead over Sacramento in the best-of-5 series, which continues Friday in Sacramento.
