Default Pioneer League Finals

Seems the Great Falls Sox came down with the major league team's illness:

From White Sox.com:

Down on the farm: Winning the Pioneer League championship just didn't seem to be in the cards for Great Falls, which dropped two straight and the final series to Orem, capped off by a 3-2 setback in 16 innings on Friday night.

The White Sox rookie affiliate had the potential winning run thrown out at the plate in the 10th inning, when Greg Paiml was nailed on C.J. Retherford's single, and couldn't score out of a situation with the bases loaded and nobody out in the 11th.

Retherford tied the game with a solo home run leading off the ninth, but Aaron Poreda continued to be the biggest story during Great Falls' season-long run of success. The hard-throwing left-hander, selected by the White Sox in the first round of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft, yielded just four hits in six scoreless innings, while striking out six. Poreda finished with 48 strikeouts and 10 walks in 46 1/3 innings.
Home-plate umpire Kyle Byrne ejected Great Falls' right fielder Andrew Mead, catcher John Curtis and manager Chris Cron during the deciding loss.

Maybe El Duque was pitching for the other team?
