Three-Star Selection!

Our Third Star: John-Ford Griffin, DH, New Hampshire (his 3-run double in the 7th inning of Game 1 was the key hit)
Our Second Star: Danny Core, P, Charleston (left with a no-decision, but it was an impressive outing nonetheless: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 SO)
Our First Star: Tim Whittaker, C, Syracuse (1-4, 2 RBI; two-out single in the 9th brought some much-needed Chief relief)
