First of all, congrats to the Kinston Indians: they won the Mills Cup with an extra-inning win last night. The K-Tribe had a fantastic regular season, going a combined 85-63. This championship is Kinston's second in three years.

The Aeros look to win their second consecutive Eastern League title, and will send Adam Miller to the mound for Game 1. He could have been facing Phillip Hughes, the Eastern League's other top pitching prospect, but Trenton lost to the underdog Sea Dogs in the first round.
