AFL West 2 at AFL East 4

Both St. Louis Cardinals representatives saw action in Saturday’s AFL All Star Game.  Catcher Ivan Herrera and pitcher Seth Elledge played for the AFL West, which lost to the AFL East 4-2.

Herrera was not in the starting lineup but came into the game in the sixth inning to replace starting catcher Tyler Stephenson, his Glendale Desert Dogs teammate.  The catcher had one at bat, in the seventh, and struck out swinging.  Herrera has played in six AFL games and has hit .300/.417/.400.

Elledge came into to pitch the eighth inning.  He retired both batters he faced on a strikeout and a ground out and left with two outs and no runners on as the managers made non-traditional moves to get everyone in the game.  Elledge has appeared in six AFL games and has not allowed an earned run.  He has pitched seven total innings and struck out 11 while keeping hitters to a .200 average against him.  Elledge has also posted one save.

Minnesota’s no. 1 prospect, outfielder Royce Lewis of the East, was named the game’s Most Valuable Player after homering on the first pitch he saw.

Sunday’s game:  No game scheduled.
