WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. — St. Cloud Rox first baseman Charlie Condon had three hits, including a pair of solo home runs, to lead the Great Plains to a 4-2 victory over the Great Lakes at the Northwoods League All-Star Game Tuesday night before 1,272 at Witter Field.

Ten Great Plains pitchers combined to hold the Great Lakes to just six hits in a game dominated by pitching, with 10 strikeouts and just one walk.

The Great Plains only managed five hits while also striking out 10 times.

Duluth Huskies All-Stars Kristian Campbell of Georgia Tech and Eduardo Rosario of Nebraska Omaha came up empty in their plate appearances. Rosario garnered a walk in the top of the ninth only to get put out via double play.

Right-handed pitcher Jake Christianson of Feather River College was Duluth’s third All-Star selection but didn’t see action. Christianson was drafted in the 15th round of Tuesday’s Major League Baseball draft by the Tampa Bay Rays.
