Kernels shine, but Eastern Division rallies for win in MWL All-Star Game

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Four Kernels shined as the Midwest League All-Star Game returned to Cedar Rapids for the first time in 12 years. Their Western Division team, however, surrendered four ninth inning runs as the East squad rallied for an 11-10 win.

The three Cedar Rapids position players in the game combined to go 4-6 at the plate, with four RBI's and three runs. Second baseman Luis Arraez went 2-3 with a run, centerfielder LaMonte Wade added a pair of RBI's and a hit in two plate appearances, while catcher AJ Murray drove in a pair of runs with a base hit in his only plate appearance of the night.

Kernel pitcher Sam Clay drew the start, striking out one, and retiring all three batters he faced in his lone inning on the mound.
