Triple-A Scranton is off until tomorrow for the All-Star Break. The Pacific Coast League All-Stars beat the International League All-Stars 6-5 after 2008 Olympian Blaine Neal blew the save in the glorious fashion in the top of the 9th. Cody Ransom replaced Justin Christian on the IL roster because J-Chrizzle is in the bigs, but did not play in the game because he’s dealing with family matters.
