I watched part of the Triple-A All Star Game last night on ESPN2 and it was quite the exciting contest. Future Pittsburgh Pirates outfield star Andrew McCutchen broke open a scoreless tie in the seventh with an RBI infield single for the International League. The Pacific Coast League came back with six runs in the ninth and held on to win the contest 6-5, despite a two-run tater tot by Pawtucket Red Sock Chris Carter that drove in Pawtucket Red Sock Joe Thurston.
But the real highlights of the night involved MLB.com's senior writer Jonathan Mayo being real awkward as the 'sideline' reporter. You may recall Mayo as Camp Tiger Claw's competition in the NY Daily News Player Pick Pool and the author of some puff piece on Roger Clemens.
