Pawtucket Red Sox Outfielder Bryce Brentz Wins Triple-A Baseball’s Home Run Derby On Monday Night
There weren’t any members of the Boston Red Sox organization in this year’s MLB Home Run Derby won by Aaron Judge, but in the Triple-A Home Run Derby, that is a different story.
Pawtucket Red Sox outfielder Bryce Brentz took his 18 home runs and put some weight behind it in Monday night’s AAA Home Run Derby in Tacoma, Washington.
Brentz won the event making it the second year in a row that a player from Pawtucket wins the Derby. Bryce Brentz hit his 18 regular season home run total in the final round of the Home Run Derby.
“It’s a blessing,” Brentz said. “Our guy last year, Chris Marrero won it. To keep the belt and protect it means a lot. I’m just happy to come out and follow in his footsteps.”
The second place winner? Tacoma player Daniel Vogelbach, who in the final round hit 10 fewer home runs than the PawSox slugger.
In total, Brentz hit 38-home-runs in the Derby.
