PawSox Lose Triple-A Championship To Reno

The Pawtucket Red Sox had a chance to be champions of all of Triple-A on Tuesday night, but instead, the honors went to the Reno Aces, who downed the PawSox 10-3. Nelson Figueroa, who pitched and won the deciding game of the International League title series, was nowhere near as effective this time out. The 38-year-old gave up six runs in the first two innings, and five PawSox relievers gave up another four runs in seven innings of work.

Alex Wilson threw a scoreless inning of relief with a strikeout and no walks, and Jose De La Torre punched out three of the four batters he faced in his one inning of work, but there weren't many other highlights from the PawSox pitching staff on Tuesday, as to be expected from the club that gave up 10 runs. Offensively, Andy LaRoche and Dan Butler both picked up a pair of hits, while Bryce Brentz went 0-3 with two walks.

Top prospect Trevor Bauer had a rough outing, going just 4-2/3 innings with seven walks against six strikeouts, but he limited the PawSox to two runs before Mike DeMark, the game's winner, came in relief to close out the fifth.

The PawSox fell short of the overall title, but they still came home with their first Governor's Cup since 1984 by winning the International League championship.
