In a game where the pitching was phenomenal and hits were hard to come by, the South All-Stars (Bethesda Big Train's team) beat out the North All-Stars 2-1.

The All-Star day event was great, from the batting practice to the 60 yard dash and from the Home Run Derby to the game itself. In the Home Run Derby, Wes Rea (Mississippi State) was the only competitor from the Big Train roster and he made his mark.

In the first round he was able to get the crowd behind him, as every ball was thrown the crowd gasped and watched as Rea unloaded on the ball. Rea finished the first round with three home runs and made it to the finals, but was unable to hit a four bagger, resulting in a second place finish.

In the game, the South All Stars had to wait until the seventh inning to record their first hit. After Logan Farrar (Virginia Commonwealth) walked in the 7th inning, Brandon Lowe (Maryland) singled. Both scored on later at-bats on ground outs by two different South players. Brandon Lowe's run proved to be the game winner, and he was named the All-Star Game MVP.

Josh Thorne (Stetson) pitched the second inning for the South All-Stars. He gave up one hit while striking out a batter in a quick inning. Sean Labsan (Florida Atlantic) pitched the 4th inning and put the North All-Stars away in order, while striking out one batter. Tim Yandel (Tulane) closed the game and recorded a save in his 1-2-3 inning in the 9th.
