The Lehigh Valley IronPigs cemented history the best way they knew how.
Tied with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in the bottom of the ninth inning, J.P. Crawford drilled a walk-off single to right field to give Lehigh Valley a 2-1 victory and its first IL North Division title in the 11-year history of the team. It was the 11th walk-off win of the season for the Pigs
Out of the gate, both sides were led by dominant pitching. Erik Swanson tossed six frames while allowing only three hits to keep the Pigs off of the board. Meanwhile, Jerad Eickhoff, making a rehab start, matched the six innings and kept the RailRiders from scoring.
Scranton broke through in the seventh by drawing a couple of walks off Mark Leiter Jr. and scoring a run on a wild pitch. The Pigs responded almost instantly in the bottom of the frame, thanks to a solo home run off the bat of Danny Ortiz.
