Snappers notable, but not shining at All-Stars game

Beloit Snappers

West All-Stars 5 at East All-Stars 4

W: B. Parker; L: M. Ramirez
HR: MIDW: T. Smith.

It would take 10 innings for the West All-Stars to defeat the East All-Stars, with Clinton's Timothy Smith (Texas) earning MVP honors by going yard off Miguel Ramirez of the host Great Lakes Loons (LA Dodgers) for the game winner.

For the Twins batters, Ben Revere would be o-for-2, as was short stop Chris Cates. Jair Fernandez would go 1-for-2 at the plate with a strike out.

David Bromberg did not fair well in his start, allowing three runs on three hits and 2 walks over .2 innings worth of work.

Steve Hirschfield worked 1 inning, allowing 1 run on 1 hit while fanning three. Loek Van Mil took over for the following inning, allowing a hit and a walk and striking out 1 but keeping the East off the board.

Spencer Steedley worked .1 inning, giving up 2 hits.

Yes, it's true. The only runs give up to the East came from Snappers players.

Bromberg was the hardest hit, walking designated hitter Manuel Rodriguez (Toronto) and infielder Andrew Parrino (San Diego) to start. He'd get Evan Frey (Arizona) out on strikes, but a single by Peter Kosma (St. Louis) loaded the bases. Andrew Lambo's (LA Dodgers) line drive brought in Rodriguez, while Chris Carlson's (Detroit) ground out plated Parrino. A single to Charles Kingrey (St. Louis) brought Kozma past the plate and prompted a pitcher change, with Trevor Reckling (LA Angels) coming in to finish off the inning.

All four of the West's runs would come while the All-Star starters were still in the game. Fernandez would single in the tenth after Smith's game winner had gone out of the park.
