Both the Double-A Eastern League and Triple-A International League had their All-Star Games on Wednesday night and a handful of Philadelphia Phillies prospects shined in the respective showcases. Dylan Cozens, Rhys Hoskins, Jorge Alfaro, Jesmuel Valentin, Hoby Milner and Nick Pivetta represented the Reading Fightin' Phils in the Eastern League game while Andrew Knapp, Cam Perkins and Edward Mujica all played a part in the International League game.
Let's start in Double-A with the members of Reading playing for the East Division All-Stars in Akron, Ohio. The Fightins made their presence known early in the game as Jorge Alfaro hit a two-out single. Dylan Cozens followed with a walk and then Rhys Hoskins blasted a three-run home run to give the East an early 3-0 lead. In the fourth, Cozens reached on a force out and scored the East's seventh run of the game. Second baseman Jesmuel Valentin hit a double and scored in the eighth inning, extending the lead to 8-2 over the West. Reading starter Nick Pivetta pitched a scoreless third inning for the East while Hoby Milner tossed two-thirds of the final inning, allowing no hits.
