It's a pretty nice honor to have 4 of your guys on an All-Star team, and it's really special when one of them is named MVP of the game. Congratulations, Drew. I hope this break gets the S-Reds going at the pace they were on when the season began.
Triple-A: Daryl Thompson nearly went the distance as the Bats won 4-1. Read more about the game in this FanPost. (Note: Keppinger and Hopper are up to Louisville in their rehab assignments.) UP NEXT: Game 2 at Rochester, 1:35 today.
Double-A: Chattanooga lost 8-2. Chris Valaika had a hit, Sean Henry had 2. UP NEXT: Lookouts at West Tennessee, Game 5, 5:35 tonight.
High A: Sarasota's Drew Stubbs was the MVP of the Florida State League All-Star Game as the West prevailed 9-3. Stubbs went 1 for 4, but that 1 was a 2-run homer in the second and proved to be the game-winning hit. Juan Francisco was 1 for 3, Chris Heisey was 0 for 2 and Ramon Geronimo got his two guys out. A splendid showing by our boys. Francisco supposedly took part in the home run derby, but I can find no record that he competed. Maybe he didn't do very well. UP NEXT: New series vs. Lakeland, 7 tomorrow.
Low A: Brandon Waring had a double and 3 RBIs in the Dragons' 9-7 loss. Zach Cozart went 3 for 4, and he's starting to heat up. He's batting .351 in his past 10 games. UP NEXT: Game 3 at South Bend, 1:30 today.
College: Yonder Alonso went 1 for 2 with a homer to center and two walks, but Miami choked on the lead and fell 7-4. UP NEXT: The Canes face Buster Posey and Florida State in an elimination game tomorrow at 1 on ESPN2.
