The South Division allowed just one hit in a 6-0 blanking of the North before 9,373 on Bragan Field at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. It was the South's second straight All-Star win after seven consecutive losses.

The All-Star-record crowd got to see a smothering effort by the South, which used 11 pitchers and limited the North one hit and just five base runners.

The Lookouts Joc Pederson, who stood out in the All-Star Futures Game, with a single and a walk couldn't duplicate that success Wednesday, going 0-for-2 for the North.

Chattanooga's Rafael Ynoa went 0-for 2.

Former Lookout Jaime Pedroza, now with the Mississippi Braves, went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks, an RBI and a stolen base.

The South totaled 11 hits and seven stolen bases.

The Chattanooga Lookouts will host next year's Southern League All-Star game, which is slated to return to a mid-June date at the end of the first half.

The Lookouts resume SL play tonight in Birmingham where they begin a five-game series against the Barons.

Chattanooga's next home game at AT&T Field will be July 23rd against the Jackson Generals.
