New, 8 comments

Not much going on tonight.

Iowa Cubs

Rained out.

Tennessee Smokies

The South All-Stars beat the North All-Stars in the Southern League All-Star Game, 5-1. (Tennessee is in the North Division.)

Brad Markey, unfortunately, was the losing pitcher in this game. He allowed five runs in two-thirds of an inning. He gave up four straight singles and a grand slam in the fifth inning. It must be said that three of the four singles were described as "soft" and two of them didn't even leave the infield.

Victor Caratini doubled and scored in the ninth inning for the only North run. He was 1 for 2.

Chesny Young was 0 for 2.

Paul Blackburn was perfect in the inning he pitched, striking out two. Juan Paniagua struck out the only batter he faced.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

The Carolina League All-Stars beat the California League All-Stars, 6-4.

Zach Hedges had a baserunner reach on an error in the inning he threw, but he erased him with a double play. Hedges struck out one.

Jake Stinnett pitched the seventh inning. He faced three batters and retired them all on ground outs.

Trevor Clifton got the save. He entered the game with one out and two on in the bottom of the ninth. After a flyout to left, he gave up a double to score one run and bring the winning run to the plate. But Clifton ended the game by getting a fly to center field.

Ian Happ was 0 for 2 in this game.

South Bend Cubs

A three-run home run in the top of the ninth inning by Eloy Jimenez tied up the game as the East All-Stars beat the West All-Stars, 11-10. (South Bend is in the East.)

Jimenez played the whole game in left field and was 1 for 5 with four RBI. Donnie Dewees played the whole game in center field and was 2 for 4 with a walk and a stolen base. He scored three runs and had one run batted in.

Jesse Hodges started at third base and was 0 for 2.

Carson Sands allowed two hits in the two-thirds of an inning he pitched. He allowed two inherited runners to score, but none of his own.

Adbert Alzolay gave up a two-run home run in the two-thirds of an inning he threw. Alzolay walked one and that was the only hit he allowed. He struck out one.

Eugene Emeralds

The Eugene Emeralds were polished off by the Hillsboro Hops (Diamondbacks), 4-1.

Jesus Castillo started and took the loss. He gave up two runs on four hits over five innings. Castillo struck out three and walked no one.

The Ems only had three hits tonight. Catcher Marcus Mastrobuoni doubled in the second inning and later scored on an error. He was 1 for 3.
