Former Beloit Snappers third baseman Renato Nunez hit a three-run homer to account for half the Pacific Coast League’s runs in the team’s 6-4 win over the International League in Wednesday’s Triple-A All-Star Game.

As a result, the Oakland Athletics prospect was named the game’s PCL MVP, while Cleveland Indians prospect Richie Shaffer (who also homered in the game) was given the IL MVP Award.

Nunez, now a leftfielder/third baseman for the Nashville Sounds, is batting .253 with 24 homers, 19 doubles, and 57 RBI in 84 games this season. He currently leads Minor League Baseball in home runs.

Nunez played for the Snappers in 2013, batting .258 with 19 HR and 85 RBI in 128 games. He played nine games at the major-league level last year.
