Just two days after winning its first-ever conference title, the Grizzlies were crowned national champions. Defeating International League Champion Columbus, 7-0, the Grizzlies make franchise history. The year 2015 marked the first time the team won its conference, the league and the class. It had one its division once before in 1998.

Right-handed pitcher Chris Devenski made his first career Triple-A start in the win, finishing with seven shutout innings and earning the MVP of the game. Jordan Jankowski and James Hoyt finished the game in relief for Fresno.

"
The Triple-A National Championship is the second for manager Tony DeFrancesco and his first since 2007 when he led the Oakland Athletics Triple-A affiliate to the title in Oklahoma City," according to the MILB. "In 12 season managing in the Pacific Coast League, he's won eight division titles and four league championships."
