Three Pirates Play in Australian Baseball League All-Star Game

21

The game actually took place on Wednesday, but due to holiday craziness, I didn't get a chance to post it until now. It's staged in an Australia vs. The World format, and the World team won this year by a score of 9 to 5 - the link above goes to the box score. First baseman Stefan Welch, a minor league free agent signed out of the Mets' system this offseason, started and batted cleanup for Team Australia, going 1-for-4 with a run scored. Rinku Singh pitched the sixth inning for the World and allowed three hits and three runs (only two earned - the last one scored on a two-out passed ball). Welch's hit and run came against Singh. Ryan Beckman pitched the eighth inning for the World and allowed one run on one hit, a home run to left by former Indians minor leaguer Joshua Roberts. In addition to the three players, Pirates scout (and Adelaide manager) Tony Harris was one of the coaches for Team Australia.
