BUFFALO, N. William Moore Jersey .Y. —Wil Myers has
spent this week making a major name for himself in minor league baseball. The
Kansas City Royals prospect drove in one run and scored another to lead the
Pacific Coast League to a 3-0 win over the International League in the Triple-A
All-Star game Wednesday night. Myers finished with a pair of hits for his second
impressive All-Star showing in four days. The 21-year-old outfielder had three
RBIs on Sunday in the Futures Game in Kansas City, a showcase for top prospects
during Major League Baseballs All-Star festivities. “It was a lot of fun,” Myers
said. “Especially being in Kansas City, in front of a home crowd, and ending it
off like this. This was the most fans Ive ever played in front of in a minor
league stadium.” A sellout crowd of 18,025 turned out in Buffalo, site of the
first Triple-A All-Star game in 1988. The city has recorded two of the three
biggest crowds in the games history. Buffalo Bisons pitcher Matt Harvey, a New
York Mets prospect, worked two shutout innings in front of the hometown fans. He
retired six of his seven batters to earn the Star of Stars award for the
International League. Myers was selected Star of Stars for the Pacific Coast
League, which snapped a three-game losing streak. The PCL has won seven of the
15 games played under the interleague format. Myers viewed his All-Star
accomplishments as merely one step toward his eventual goal of a big league
call-up. “Its cool to come out here and get the MVP award,” he said. “Its
something Ill always remember. Hopefully the call-up will be even better. It
could obviously happen at any time. Right now, I just want to go out and try to
get better at-bats.” Myers, currently with the Omaha Storm Chasers, singled home
a run in the first inning to put the PCL up 2-0. He led off the fourth with a
double and scored on an RBI double by Tim Federowicz of the Albuquerque Isotopes
in the Los Angeles Dodgers system. Mike Hessman of Oklahoma City (Houston
Astros) drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly. PCL pitchers combined to
allow five hits while striking out 11. IL hurlers also fanned 11. “It seems like
everybody throws 95 (mph) now on both ends,” said Buffalos Valentino Pascucci,
who won the Triple-A Home Run Derby on Monday and had a double and three walks
in the game. Leslie Anderson of Durham (Tampa Bay Rays) had two infield singles
for the International League. The shutout was the fifth in the events 25-game
history and the second in a row. The IL won 3-0 in 2011. Matt Bosher Jersey . 1-ranked Laval Rouge et

American Leagues second-best home ERA. The short-handed Blue Jays are finding
out why. Jason Vargas shut down Toronto for seven innings and leading Seattle to
a 7-2 victory Tuesday night. The Blue Jays have struck out 21 times and scored
three runs in the first two games of the series. “In the last two weeks, weve
lost four middle-of-the-order bats,” Toronto manager John Farrell said. “We are
trying to find the combination to keep some innings alive.” They werent able to
do so against Vargas, who has been dominant all month. Vargas (12-7) allowed two
earned runs and just five hits Tuesday. He went 5-0 with a 1.64 ERA during the
July, tying a Mariners record for wins in any month, and is the first to go 5-0
in a month since Felix Hernandez in Sept. 2009. Dustin Ackley hit Aaron Laffeys
first pitch of the game for his second career leadoff homer and seventh of the
season overall. Ackley also drove in a run in the fourth on a fielders choice.
Robinson hustled for a double to start the inning off. Laffey (2-2) lasted just
4 2-3 innings, allowing nine hits and seven runs. The Mariners roughed up Laffey
for three runs in the second after scoring a run in the first. Mike Carp
singled, Miguel Olivo doubled and Trayvon Robinson had an RBI single.
Brendan Ryan drove in another with a single to right field—pulling his
average to .200 for the first time since April 21. Robinson then scored on
Ackleys grounder to first base. “When I was four-seamer early in the count, they
were jumping all over it,” Laffey said. “Ive gotten away from my sinker the last
couple games. Thats my bread and butter right there.” Torontos Brett Lawrie,
hitting leadoff Tuesday, had struck out five consecutive times in the series
bbefore lacing a double into the left-field corner in the third. Matt Bryant Jersey. His first hit in eight
at-bats scored two runs—only because rookie Moises Sierra, who had singled
for his first career hit, sprinted past a stop sign from third base coach Brian
Butterfield and narrowly scored. Vargas laboured through a 30-pitch inning and
had thrown 62 pitches by the end of the third. But, Vargas then retired 10
straight before Yunel Escobar led off the seventh with a hit. Rajai Davis also
singled in the seventh, though Vargas would rebound to get consecutive flyouts
from Jeff Mathis and Sierra. “Once again we find ourselves behind early in the
game and (that) kind of eliminates some of the aggressiveness we might otherwise
look to use,” Farrell said. Laffey hit Carp to load the bases in the fifth.
Brandon Lyon was summoned from the bullpen, and he allowed a two-run single up
the middle by Olivo to make it 7-2. The last time the Mariners won six
consecutive games was May 18-23, 2011. The last time they won more than six in a
row was June 23-31, 2007. “One thing thats important to me is youre not just
doing it one way or another,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “You have to
have multiple ways to win ballgames up here if youre going to be a consistent
winner and youre seeing us do that.” NOTES: The Mariners called up relievers
Carter Capps and Stephen Pryor from Triple-A Tacoma to take the place of traded
relievers Brandon League and Steve Delabar. . Delabar debuted for the Blue Jays
a night after being traded from Seattle. He pitched a scoreless seventh inning.
... Outfielder Eric Thames, whom the Mariners traded for Monday, also joined the
club. . Sierra was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday. He got the start
in right field. ’ ’ ’
