Last night, five BayBears took part in the Southern League All-Star Game at Five County Stadium in Zebulon, North Carolina. Although their team lost 6-1, those five BayBears, for the most part, did all they could to help the South's cause.

First baseman Bryan Byrne went 2-for-4 in the Southern League All-Star Game, crushing two singles as he normally does. Shortstop Yunesky Sanchez ripped a double and later scored in his 1-for-4 outing. The South’s lone run came on a Rusty Ryal sacrifice fly to drive home Sanchez.  The second baseman did not reach base in three plate appearances.

Brooks Brown pitched an inning in relief, but surrendered a solo home run to the Smokies’ Doug Deeds in the sixth inning. Abe Woody entered in the seventh and recorded two outs without incident.
