All-Star Suns not enough for North

June 23, 1999

SALISBURY, Md. - Tuesday night, the South all-stars pulled out all the stops late in the game, getting a three-run 10th inning of Hagerstown closer Jarrod Kingrey of the North to take a 5-2 victory in the 40th annual South Atlantic League All-Star Game at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.

The full house of 4,685 was treated one of the biggest pitcher's duels imaginable, as the first 16 pitchers - eight for both sides - combined to allow only 10 hits and two earned runs and struck out 18 against the best batters the league had to offer.

Hagerstown's Pasqual Coco, who leads the league with 12 victories, started the game for the North and hit the first batter he saw, Macon's Rafael Furcal. He came around to score for a 1-0 lead. The North got one back in the third, but the South countered with one in the sixth. The North tied the game at 2-2 in the eighth.

Coco struck out one in his one inning of work. Jorge Nunez started at second base and went 1-for-2 with an RBI. Jay Gibbons went the entire game as the DH, finishing 1-for-4. Tyler Thompson was a substitute; he went 0-for-2.
