The North All-Stars defeated the South All-Stars 2-0 at the Carolina League All-Star Game Tuesday in Salem, Va. MVP third baseman Michael Chavis delivered a two-run double in the first inning to account for all the scoring.
Catcher Taylor Gushue went 0-for-2 with a strikeout and one man left on base. But Gushue made a huge defensive play when he caught left fielder Straw attempting to steal in he opening frame.
Left fielder Victor Robles also went 0-for-2 batting in the No. 7 hole.
Third baseman Kelvin Gutierrez did not get into the game, partly because Chavis was the MVP.
North All-Stars used nine pitchers -- one for each inning - but right-hander Ronald Pena did not pitch. The nine pitchers for the North All-Stars combined for no runs, five hits, no walks with eight strikeouts.
Regardless of game participation, it is still a big honor that the P-Nats had four members of the club invited to the All-Star game.
