Redbirds win PCL Championship

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Memphis Redbirds capped off its historic season with a Pacific Coast League championship win.

The Redbirds knocked off the defending PCL champion, El Paso Chihuahuas, in five games for their first PCL title since 2009.

Third baseman Patrick Wisdom smacked a two-run home run en route to a playoff MVP.

Memphis will next play Durham in the Triple-A National Championship. That series starts Tuesday.

The PCL crown is the team's third, and first under rookie manager Stubby Clapp.
