  • Box Score
For the fourth time in five years, the International League defeated the Pacific Coast League, pulling the all-time series even at five games apiece since the Triple-A midsummer classic assumed it's current format in 1998. An early offensive outburst produced twelve runs in the game's first four innings before the pitchers took over, keeping the score 7-5 the rest of the way. The IL jumped out to a quick four-run lead in the top of the 1st inning on the strength of an RBI double by Toledo outfielder Timo Perez and back-to-back homers by Perez's teammate Mike Hessman and Pawtucket's Brandon Moss. The PCL All-Stars cut that lead in half in the bottom of the 1st with some long ball heroics of their own. A two-run blast by Albuquerque's own Valentino Pascucci made it a 4-2 ballgame. Brandon Watson of Columbus doubled home Indianapolis' Brian Bixler in the 2nd, and two innings later RBI singles by Rochester's Matt Tolbert and Perez gave the IL a commanding 7-2 lead. The PCL bounced right back though, striking for three runs in the bottom half of the 4th, which turned out to be the game's final runs. The evening's best drama came in the bottom of the 8th inning when the PCL loaded the bases before Rochester's Bobby Korecky struck out Albuquerque's Robert Andino to end the threat. Timo Perez, who went 3-4 with two RBI and a run scored was named the IL Star of Stars for his performance, while hometown hero Valentino Pascucci took home the PCL's Star of Stars award.

  • Box Score
Durham first baseman Kevin Witt cracked a monstrous two-run home run that powered the International League to a 6-0 victory over its Pacific Coast League counterparts before a sellout crowd of 11,300 in Toledo. The victory was the third in four Triple-A All-Star Games for the International League, which last triumphed in 2004 at Pawtucket, R.I. Witt, who also had an RBI double and a single to complete his perfect evening, was named the IL's Top Star. While Witt was recognized as his team's top player, the award easily could have gone to any of the IL pitchers, who allowed two hits en route to the third shutout in Triple-A All-Star history. The last time a team got blanked was in 2002, when the PCL posted a 9-0 victory in Oklahoma City. Charlotte's Heath Phillips earned the victory, allowing no hits and striking out one while pitching the third and fourth innings. The PCL didn't get a hit until Portland's Justin Leone laced a two-out double to left in the fifth. The IL opened the scoring in the third, getting things started with a single by Charlotte's Jorge Velandia. He went to third on Leone's throwing error at third base and scored on a wild pitch before Witt bashed his two-run homer, a shot that landed in the center field bleachers, off loser Ben Hendrickson of Nashville. Witt's RBI double in the fifth made it 4-0 before the IL padded its lead in the seventh, when Syracuse's Kevin Barker and Toledo's Ryan Raburn connected for back-to-back solo homers off Sacramento's Matt Roney. Iowa Cubs southpaw Rich Hill was named PCL Player of the Game after striking out two over two scoreless innings.

  • Box Score
Gerald Laird cracked the first grand slam in Triple-A All-Star Game history to lead the hosts to an 11-5 rout of the International League before a sellout crowd. The victory snapped a two-year losing streak for the PCL, which has won five of the eight contests played between the Leagues. The runs were the most the PCL has scored in the series, eclipsing nine-run outbursts in 1999 and 2001. The IL got off to a quick start, touching Memphis' Chris Gissell for a run in the first inning. Buffalo's Jake Gautreau and Home Run Derby champ Mitch Jones of Columbus put runners on the corners with back-to-back singles before Syracuse's John-Ford Griffin brought home the game's first run with a sacrifice fly. In the bottom of the first, International League starter Jason Scobie started by walking Oklahoma's Esteban German, and the PCL took off from there. Andy Green followed with a single before Tucson teammate Conor Jackson brought home German with a base hit. Sacramento's Matt Watson walked two batters later to load the bases, setting the stage for Laird. He lined Scobie's 1-1 offering onto the berm in the corner beyond the left field fence to claim his place in All-Star lore and put the PCL ahead for good. Louisville's Edwin Encarnacion smacked a solo homer off Gissell in the second, but Green and Watson drove in runs in the bottom of the inning, cementing the rout. The game was long decided by the sixth, when the PCL scored four more runs, two of which came on Watson's homer to deep left. While the PCL bats were explosive, its bullpen was no less effective through the middle innings. Portland's Clay Hensley, Memphis' Kevin Jarvis, Tucson's Jason Bulger and Sacramento's Victor Moreno each pitched a scoreless inning following Gissell. It wasn't until the seventh inning that the visitors mounted a comeback, roughing up Salt Lake's Dusty Bergman, Tacoma's Masao Kida and Albuquerque's Jim Crowell for three runs over 2 1/3 innings. But it wasn't enough.

Columbus' Andy Phillips hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the tenth inning, sending the International League to a dramatic 4-3 win over the PCL Stars in the 2004 All-Star Game at Pawtucket's McCoy Stadium. In a rare sight in New England, Phillips, a New York Yankees' farmhand, had the pro-Red Sox faithful on their feet as he blasted a dramatic home run to center field, preventing the first All-Star tie. The PCL club jumped out to an early lead in the first inning as Trenidad Hubbard (Iowa) and Larry Sutton (Albuquerque) scored on consecutive singles by Omaha's Calvin Pickering and Memphis' John Gall. The IL Stars were hitless through the first three frames but evened the score in the bottom of the fourth as Toledo's Joe Vitiello drove in Rochester's Justin Morneau with a homer to left. The teams remained tied until the eighth inning when Durham's Midre Cummings' solo homer gave the IL the lead. Cummings had made the defense play of the game a half inning earlier - robbing Colorado Springs' Erick Almonte of a home run with a spectacular catch. Pickering singled to lead off the ninth and came around to score on a passed ball (following a walk to Salt Lake's Adam Riggs and a single by Oklahoma's Peter Zoccolillo), tying the game at 3-3. The IL couldn't answer in the bottom of the ninth, sending a Triple-A All-Star Game to extra frames for the first time, and setting up Phillips' heroics. The Clippers' Phillips was named the Dodge Most Valuable Player while Cummings earned IL "Star of the Game" honors. Memphis pitcher Dan Haren, who held the IL hitless through the first two innings, was named PCL "Star of the Game".

  • Box Score
The International League All-Stars broke a four-game losing streak in the series, defeating the Pacific Coast League 13-9 in the record-setting 2003 All-Star Game. The 22 combined runs marked the most in Triple-A All-Star play. Each team scored single runs in the first inning as Lou Collier (Pawtucket) came home for the IL and Salt Lake's Alfredo Amezaga scored for the PCL Stars. Down 3-2 heading into the fourth inning, the IL Stars plated three runs on Johnny Estrada's RBI single and Jason Smith's 2-run homer. The PCL retook the lead in the bottom of the frame as Rene Reyes (Colorado Springs) blasted a two-run homer and Albuquerque's Rob Stratton hit a sacrifice fly. The IL struck for three runs again in both the fifth and sixth innings, then had solo scores in the seventh and ninth frames. A trio of IL relievers (Norfolk's Jeremy Griffiths, Scranton/W.B.'s Wayne Gomes, and Durham's Lee Gardner) limited the PCL to two hits over the final three innings to preserve the win. In addition to Smith and Reyes, Richmond's Estrada, Collier and PawSox teammate Anton French homered for the IL while Oklahoma's Jason Jones hit a three-run blast in the sixth to complete the PCL's scoring and earn the League's "Star of Stars" Award. Three IL batters had three hits each - "Star of Stars" Winner and Maurice LaCroix Lou Gehrig Batter-of-the-Game Estrada (3-3, 2B, HR, 3 RBI), Collier (3-5, HR, SB, 2 RBI) and French (3-5, HR, SB) - while no PCL batter had more than one. Collier and French each scored three runs for the IL Stars. Columbus reliever Sam Marsonek worked a perfect fifth inning for the IL to earn Pitcher-of-the-Game honors.
