Buffalo, N.Y. — The Triple-A All-Star game in Buffalo Wednesday night ended in a shut-out. The Pacific Coast League took a 3-0 victory over the International League for the first time since 2008.
Pacific Coast's victory means they will have home-field advantage when at the Triple-A National Championship game on Sept. 18 at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
The Durham Bulls' Leslie Anderson started in right field and went 2-3. Bulls' pitcher Dane De La Rosa pitched a scoreless seventh inning in relief, giving up a hit and a walk while striking out two.
Two former North Carolina baseball players also took the field in Buffalo. Former Apex High and UNC alumnus Tim Fedorowicz caught as a representative from the Albuquerque Isotopes. Fedorowicz knocked in a run for the PCL with an RBI double.
Former UNC pitcher Matt Harvey, currently playing for the Buffalo Bison, pitched a scoreless second and third innings, striking out two. Harvey earned the Top Star Award for the IL.
The Bulls return to play Thursday with a four-game series against the Charlotte Knights.
