Gaston falls three RBI short of $7,000

Albuquerque's Mitch Jones won the Joe Bauman Home Run Award, despite hitting the same number of home runs as our boy Jon Gaston.

How did that happen? Because, in the event of a tie, the nod goes to the player with the most RBI - and Mitch Jones finished with 103; Gaston, 100.

And it came down to the last at-bat, with Jones hitting his Gaston-tying homer in his last at-bat of the season.
