Yasmany Tomás is Triple-A's home run king.

The Reno Aces slugger won the Triple-A Home Run Derby on Monday night in El Paso, out-slugging Mike Ford of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders with a final-round total of 19 bombs. He hit 20 homers in both the first and second rounds.

Aces teammate, Kevin Cron, also was picked to take part in the event, although he did not as he was recently called up to the big leagues. The other participants in the derby were Brandon Barnes, Ryan McBroom, Travis Demeritte, Jorge Mateo, Roberto Ramos and Ty France.

The 28-year-old Tomás is hitting .309 with 25 home runs this season, second in the Pacific Coast League behind Cron, who has 29. He spent parts of 2015-17 with the Arizona Diamondbacks, hitting .268 with 48 homers in 305 games but hasn't been in the big leagues since June 2, 2017.
