Jukich pitches Bats into playoffs

Duluth native Ben Jukich pitched Louisville to a 6-3 victory over visiting Indianapolis on Monday as the Bats won the International League West Division for the third straight year in improbable fashion.

Jukich (7-4, 3.90 ERA) allowed three runs on three hits in 6 2/3 innings, with four strikeouts and three walks. Louisville, the Class AAA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, trailed by more than nine games in the standings in late July and needed to win on the final day of the regular season and get some help to overtake Columbus for their eighth division title in franchise history.

Louisville and Durham open a best-of-five playoff series at 7:05 p.m. today at Louisville Slugger Field.
