Agosta pitched a scoreless 1st inning, allowing just a walk. Stratton allowed singles to four of his seven batters in the 3rd inningand allowed both of the North's two runs. Mizenko retired his only batter.

After four singles in his first three games, Cornier homered and tripled for his first XBHs this year, although the 21-year-old also allowed a couple passed balls.

Dominican: C Jose Morles: 1 for 2, 2B, BB
Dominican: SP Michael Santos: 5.0 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K--1 WP
This was an easy line to choose--Morles' (18.10 y.o.) double was the Gigantes' lone hit, and he drew their only walk. Santos (18.0 y.o.) was solid in his fourth pro start.
