Sacramento last won the PCL title in 2008, the last of their four titles in six years when they were an Oakland A’s affiliate. Sacramento is now a San Francisco Giants affiliate, and no Giants affiliate has won a Triple-A championship since the Phoenix Giants won the PCL in 1977. That’s crazy.
Round Rock joined the Triple-A ranks in 2005 and has not yet won a championship at this level, though the city did enjoy a baseball title in 2000 as a member of the Double-A Texas League.
