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."
