Choice scores a run but PCL drops All-Star Game

Michael Choice, the only one of the three Sacramento River Cats selected as All-Stars to stay on the Pacific Coast League’s roster, started in center field and went 1-for-2 with a run scored, but the PCL lost the Triple-A All-Star Game, 4-3, to the International League.

Indianapolis’ Tony Sanchez hit a three-run homer in the top of the second inning to power the International squad in a game held Wednesday at Aces Ballpark in Reno.

The home run — off of Oklahoma City pitcher Jarred Cosart, who had recently had a sparkling MLB debut for the Houston Astros — erased a 2-1 PCL lead.

Later, with the PCL trailing 4-2, Choice led off the bottom of the fourth with a single, then advanced to third on a single and a passed ball.

Choice came home on Johnny Monell’s groundout, scoring the final run of the game.
