WINSTON-SALEM -- Dwayne Pollok of the Winston-Salem Warthogs is the Carolina League winner of the Rolaids Relief Man competition for June, compiling 20 points on 6 saves and a 1-0 record.

Pollok is a Chicago White Sox farmhand. Pollok led the Carolina League with 16 saves heading into Tuesday's game against Kinston. Pollok was a 27th round pick by the White Sox out of Texas A&M in 2003.

The point leader among relief pitchers each month (through August) in all of Minor League Baseball's domestic leagues will be presented certificates. In the Rolaids Relief Man program, a pitcher gets three points for each save, two points for each relief win, while losing two points for each relief loss.

There are also awards based on the full season.
