The winner takes all one-game championship will be played in Albuquerque, a place traditionaly known for having high scoring baseball games.

Columbus, the defending AAA Champions will send Mitch Talbot to the mound, a 27-year old veteran who has pitched for both the Indians and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Talbot, like O`Sullivan, struggled in his time at the major league level this season. For Cleveland he started 11 games and was 2-6 with a 6.33 ERA. In 13 games (seven starts) with the Clippers he is 4-2 with a 4.26 ERA.
