Bottom of 7th in AAA All-Star game. No score. He's up with bases juiced and one out (Bixler). Hits one-hopper to second base. Ball booted for an E. Run scores. 1-zip, International League.

Oops, my bad. ESPN now saying McCutchen's ball was ruled a hit. That makes him 2-for-2 -- both singles.

Bixler, unless I missed an at-bat, is 0-for-3.

McCutchen 2-for-2, RBI, and 2 putouts in CF. Didn't start the game, but ESPN is saying he's in line to be named Most Valuable Player.

Being interviewed now. Says he tries not to pay too much attention to Pirate trade rumors because he needs to concentrate on his own development. Appears to be personable and relatively humble.

Bixler has had almost no action at SS except for starting one double play attempt. But second baseman's pivot and relay didn't get the runner at 1B.

IL's closer crapping the bed, blows 2-0 lead on 5 hits and a walk. IL now losing 4-2. McCutchen tried to gun down the tieing run at the plate, but couldn't.

Bottom 9th. Bixler leads off with broken-bat single. Goes to 3B on single to LCF. Scores on sac fly by McCutchen. So Indy players' night is over.

McCutchen -- 2 hits, sac fly, 2 RBI

Bixler -- 1-for-4, run scored

Wow. I guess the cupboard is bare at shortstop in more than just the Pirate's farm system if Bixler is a AAA all-star.
