Shipley, PCL fall in AAA All-Star game
Former North Medford standout Braden Shipley and the Pacific Coast League fell, 4-2, against the International League in the Triple-A All-Star Game in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday.
Shipley, who entered in the fourth inning representing the Arizona Diamondbacks, gave up a home run to Lehigh Valley's Andrew Knapp before inducing a groundout and recording a pair of strikeouts.
Lehigh Valley's Edward Mujica and nine other relievers threw seven scoreless innings in the International League's win.
Columbus' Erik Gonzalez, Knapp and Pawtucket's Chris Marrero homered for the International League.
Mujica got the final out to earn the save. After Las Vegas' Travis Taijeron hit a two-run homer off starter Jason Wheeler of Rochester in the second inning, the 10 relievers limited the Pacific Coast League to one hit the rest of the way.
