Reno Aces crowned Triple-A National Champions

Posted September 18, 2012

— The Reno Aces are the winners of the 2012 Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game, after blowing out the International League Champion Pawtucket Red Sox 10-3 on Tuesday night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

The Pacific Coast League Champs scored early and often, opening up with a three spot in the first inning off of Pawtucket’s starter Nelson Figueroa. A.J. Pollock led off the Aces attack with a triple, and came all the way home during the following at bat. That set the tone as the Aces forced Figueroa from the game after just two innings. He ended the day giving up six runs and was replaced by Chris Hernandez in the third.

Reno scored multiple runs in three out of the first four innings. They received help from home runs by Brent Clevlen and Keon Broxton. Broxtron’s two run blast in the bottom of the fifth was his first career Triple-A dinger.

Trevor Bauer was solid in his start, but did not receive the win. He lasted 4.2 innings and allowed two earned runs, while walking seven and striking out six. Mike DeMark replaced the Arizona Diamondback’s top prospect with the bases loaded in the top of the fifth and struck out Jon Hee to end the inning. DeMark got the win, lasting an inning and a third and striking out three.

A.J. Pollock was honored as the Baseball America 2012 Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game MVP. Pollock went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored.
