Sod Poodles Win Texas League Title

The Amarillo Sod Poodles are Texas League champions.

On Sunday, the Amarillo Sod Poodles clinched their first franchise championship title, defeating the Tulsa Drillers in Tulsa, 8-3. The Soddies clawed their way back from a two run deficit in the ninth inning to win the title, bringing Amarillo home its first AA baseball title in over 40 years.

The game also marked the first AA-Texas League title for the San Diego Padres’ minor league affiliate since 2013, when the San Antonio Missions won the title. The Missions also came close to winning in 2018, but were shut out, losing all three games of the series to the Tulsa Drillers.
