Starter Travis Wood (pictured) and Logan Ondrusek of the Carolina Mudcats each pitched a perfect inning for the North Division in a 7-0 rout over the homestanding South in the Southern League All-Star Game on Monday night at Birmingham.
Ten pitchers appeared for the North in a four-hit shutout, in which no South Division player safely touched third base.
Josh Bell of the Chattanooga Lookouts was the offensive hero, going 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI to earn the game's Star of Stars honor.
In other Carolina news, former Mudcat Chris Heisey - now playing for the Louisville Bats - was named International League player of the week for games ending Sunday.
The Mudcats return home on Wednesday night at 7:15 to take on Chattanooga in the opener of a five-game series.
