Albuquerque Isotopes outfielder Joc Pederson had the biggest hit of the night for the Pacific Coast League at Wednesday’s Triple-A All-Star Game.
The PCL All-Stars took on the International League All-Stars in the annual game, played in Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, N.C.
Pederson took a 3-1 pitch deep into the right field seats to put the PCL on the board in the All-Star Game.
But the PCL wouldn’t be able to muster nearly enough offense to keep pace with the International League. The International League prevailed 7-3 Wednesday.
Only Pederson and bench coach Glenn Dishman were on-hand to represent the Isotopes, who are sitting in third place in the four-team PCL Pacific Southern Division heading into the second half of the season.
Pederson has been one of the biggest bright spots for Albuquerque so far in 2014. He’s hitting .324 with 13 doubles, 4 triples, 17 home runs and has knocked in 43 runs.
His home run total is sixth-best in the league, as is his 20 stolen bases. He’s also fifth in slugging percentage. (.572).
For the game, Pederson went 1-for-3 and scored two of the PCL’s three runs.
