BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Kansas City Royals prospect Wil Myers drove in one run and scored another to lead the Pacific Coast League to a 3-0 win over the International League in the Triple-A All-Star game Wednesday night.
Myers finished with a pair of hits for his second impressive All-Star showing in four days. The 21-year-old outfielder had three RBIs on Sunday in the Futures Game in Kansas City, a showcase for top prospects during Major League Baseball's All-Star festivities.
Myers was selected Star of Stars for the Pacific Coast League, which snapped a three-game losing streak. The PCL has won seven of the 15 games played under the interleague format.
Buffalo Bisons pitcher Matt Harvey, a New York Mets prospect, worked two shutout innings in front of the hometown fans. He retired six of his seven batters to earn the Star of Stars award for the International League.
The game was played before a sellout crowd of 18,025 in its return to Buffalo, site of the first Triple-A All-Star game in 1988. The city has recorded two of the three biggest crowds in the game's history.
The shutout was the fifth in the event's 25-game history and the second in a row. The IL won 3-0 in 2011.
Myers, currently with the Omaha Storm Chasers, singled home a run in the first inning to put the PCL up 2-0. He led off the fourth with a double and scored on an RBI double by Tim Federowicz of the Albuquerque Isotopes in the Los Angeles Dodgers' system.
Mike Hessman of Oklahoma City (Houston Astros) drove in the first run with a sacrifice fly.
PCL pitchers combined to allow five hits while striking out 11. International League hurlers also fanned 11.
