East defeats West in 2007 CCBL All-Star Game

The East defeated the West by a score of 3-2 in the 45th annual Cape Cod Baseball League All-Star Game which took place in Wareham this year. The East team picked up all three runs in an exciting fourth inning. Yonder Alonso (Miami, FL) got a single with one out in the inning off of Christian Friedrich (Eastern Kentucky). He was driven in on a ringing triple by Gordon Beckham (Georgia) to get the East squad on the board. Beckham would then score on a wild pitch to put the East up 2-0 but the East was not finished in the fourth as Dennis Raben (Miami, FL) homered to finish off the scoring in the top of the inning. The West would respond in the bottom of the fourth with Matt Hague (Washington) scoring on a fielder's choice. James Darnell (South Carolina) would homer later in the game but it was too late as the East was able to squeak out a 3-2 victory.

Dennis Raben was named the MVP for the East squad for hitting that homer and Aaron Crow (Missouri) of the West squad was named that team MVP for striking out all three batters in the first inning.

Remember that the Game will be shown on Monday, July 30th on NESN if you want to watch the premier college baseball players.
