Red Sox Prospect Michael Chavis Leads Carolina League North To 2-0 Victory

The Carolina League All Star Game was more a pitchers duel then an offensive showcase, but it only took a key hit by Salem Red Sox third baseman Michael Chavis to send the North to a 2-0 victory.

In the bottom of the first inning, Wilmington Blue Rocks shortstop Nicky Lopez opened the frame with a lead-off single. With Frederick Keys right fielder Austin Hays batting, Lopez stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch from Myrtle Beach Pelicans Adbert Alzolay.

Hays worked out a walk, putting runners on first and third. Then Chavis hit a line drive double to center field scoring both Lopez and Hayes for the only runs of the game.

From that point on the North and South pitching staffs were almost unhittable leaving zeros on the scoreboard with each passing inning.

In the top of the eighth the South threatened to score when they had runners on first and second, but Blue Rocks Richard Lovelady got Carolina Mudcats shortstop Isan Diaz to line out to center field to end the inning.

Chavis earned the games MVP adding to his already explosive first half of the season, as he is hitting .318, with 17 home runs and 55 RBIs.
