Scobie takes loss in Triple-A All-Star Game

Posted Jul 14, 2005

Norfolk Tides righthander Jason Scobie took the loss in Wednesday's Triple-A All-Star Game, allowing five earned runs - including a grand slam - in the first inning. Scobie's International League fell to the Pacific Coast League, 11-5.

It was a nightmarish outing for Scobie, a 24-year-old starter who was selected to the IL team after going 10-4 with a 3.40 ERA in 17 starts for the Tides.

With Scobie failing to throw strikes and getting ahead of hitters, the PCL batted around in the first inning, notching five earned runs on four hits and two walks.

Conor Jackson stroked a RBI single as the first three batters reached base in the inning. After Scobie got Mike Coolbaugh to ground for the first out of the frame, former Met Matt Watson walked and Gerald Laird followed with a long grand slam to left.

Scobie's Tides teammate, righthanded reliever Juan Padilla, pitched a scoreless seventh inning around a single.
