ABL title home run for Melbourne Aces

Melbourne has secured their first Australian Baseball League title to give retiring trio Luke Hughes, Allan de San Miguel and Peter Moylan a fairytale farewell.

The Aces' offence was too hot for Adelaide in game two In Melbourne on Saturday, complementing a strong start from Wes Helsabeck to bank a 6-2 victory in the best of three championship series.

Backing up a 4-3 win on Friday also secured Victoria's first Claxton Shield since 2010.

Melbourne racked up 11 hits to six and Helsabeck worked 6-2/3 innings for the Aces, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk.

The lefty finished with seven strikeouts before being relieved by Jon Kennedy.

Melbourne used the long ball to jump out to an early lead against Adelaide lefty David Holmberg.

Shane Robinson launched a two-run shot to right field to open the scoring in the third after the Giants missed a chance to turn an inning-ending double play.

Delmon Young made it 3-0 with a solo homer to centre field in the fourth inning.

Adelaide replied on Mikey Reynolds' solo homer to right field but the comeback was short-lived as the Aces piled on three runs in a long top of the fifth.

Holmberg gave up back-to-back singles to Jarryd Dale and de San Miguel to start the inning.

Dale scored as DJ Burt grounded into a double play ahead of a line drive from Robinson hitting Holmberg and forcing him from the mound.

Melbourne added two more runs against Giants' reliever Gunnar Kines.

Young and Nate Samson both singled after lengthy at-bats to bring home runs for the Aces.

Jeremy Hazelbaker added the Giants' second solo shot off Helsabeck to lead off the seventh.
