P-Nats in All-Star game; Stevenson, Solís shine for Chiefs

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.

* Center fielder Andrew Stevenson had three hits and three stolen bases as Triple-A Syracuse beat Scranton/Wiles-Barre 5-2. Stevenson now has seven multi-hit games in his last 15 played. The three stolen bases were the most by a Chiefs player since Jeff Kobernus on September 1, 2013.

Solis-Throws-Red-Sidebar.jpgStevenson is hitting .378 in his last 10 games with 14 hits and six RBIs. Plus his LSU Tigers beat Florida State 7-4 to advance in the College World Series. LSU(2-1) plays Oregon State (2-0) in a must-win Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. Eastern.

Left-hander Sammy Solís threw one inning as he continues his rehab, notching two strikeouts in a 1-2-3 seventh. It was the first time he has gone back-to-back in his rehab, pitching June 20 and 21.
