The New Hampshire Wild were represented well in the first Empire League All Star Game as Chris Jacobs advanced to the Semi-Finals in the Home Run Derby and Joshua Wong goes yard to win the Most Valuable Player Award.
Wong started the game off with a sacrifice fly in the first inning that scored Luc Pomales of the Surge who had tripled and batted in Wilds second baseman Richard Colla. The East took a 3-0 lead in the first inning.
Wong went on to get a base hit up the middle in the 3rd Inning but was thrown out a second trying to steal. In the 6th inning for his final at bat of the game, Wong launched a 2-Run Home Run off West-Explorers pitcher Harrison Lee that was the decider in the game. Wong ended the day 2 for 2 with 1 Run Scored, a Home Run and 3 runs batted in as the East won the game by a score of 6-4.
Ryan Oglesby, Tony McClendon and Jorge De Leon combined for 3 and 1/3 shut out innings.
Jacobs grounded to third in his only at bat and Richard Colla had an RBI Single in the first inning and ended up scoring.
